General surgery is the surgery that focuses on abdominal contents including esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, appendix and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland and can be done through minimally invasive techniques or traditional methods. General surgeries can be of these types :
Open surgery is when the surgeon makes a large incision (cut) in the belly to reach the area to be treated. This type of surgery requires
a hospital stay and can take several weeks to recover completely.
Laparoscopic surgery is when the surgeon makes a small incision in the belly and inserts a thin, narrow tube containing a small camera and light (scope) and specialized tools. The scope sends pictures to a large television screen so that the surgeon can see the area to be treated. Other small incisions are used to insert additional tools to help the surgeon work. In most cases, this type of surgery can be done on an outpatient basis (no hospital stay required) and it usually takes less time to recover.
