All of Juris Medicus’ general surgery experts are board-certified by the American Board of Surgery.
A general surgeon is a physician that has specialized knowledge and experience related to the diagnosis and perioperative management in nine primary components of surgery. These components include the alimentary tract (GI tract), abdomen, breast, skin and soft tissue, head and neck, vascular system, endocrine system, surgical oncology, trauma management, and complete care of critically ill patients.
With the advancement of high-tech instrumentation and technology, a general surgeon is an evolving specialist. Many major surgery approaches are now replaced with minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques that reduce pain and accelerate recuperation of patients requiring surgical interventions. Surgery may involve a scheduled plan of care, but often specialists with the surgical skills of a general surgeon must be responsive to emergent demands where life-saving procedures are necessary.
