General Surgeon in India
General surgery in itself is a very broad field of work and Dr. Atul Mishra is a specialist in this field.

General surgery basically deals with the abdominal portion including esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver etc. They also include Thyroid glands, skin, breast, soft tissue, trauma, peripheral vascular surgery, and hernias.
The scope of general surgery
General surgery deals and demands from an individual the knowledge of and responsibility for the preoperative, operative, and postoperative management of patients with a wide range of diseases, including those which may require non-operative, elective, or emergency surgical treatment. These types of surgeries also demand a good decision making skill from the individual because sometimes a person may have to take decisions under cooker pressure situation.
In addition to the aforementioned fields, a general surgeon should also demonstrate its capability in –
- Surgical Critical Care
- Surgical Oncology
As General Surgery is a very vast field, it has its own subspecialty, since there are many abdominal organs that may be causing the pain. These types of surgeries are often done as emergency operations because the pain caused by the abdominal organs is unbearable and fatal.
Modern technology has also changed the methods that were previously used for general surgeries. Nowadays, laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgery also known as keyhole surgery is used for the surgery purposes. These technologies or methods are also a hit amongst the patients as there are fewer scars, less scarring, shorter recovery time and improved outcomes. As bowel tumor and hernia repair can now be carried out by laparoscopic technique hence, some general surgeons choose to specialize in laparoscopic surgery. A small number of surgeons are highly specialized and only perform complex surgeries such as organ transplant.
