What's a General Surgeon?
 
 
According to facs.org: A general surgeon has specialized knowledge and experience related to the diagnosis, preoperative, operative, and postoperative management, including the management of complications, in nine primary components of surgery, all of which are essential to the education of a broadly based surgeon:
  • Alimentary tract
  • Abdomen and its contents
  • Breast, skin, and soft tissue
  • Head and neck, including trauma, vascular, endocrine, congenital and oncologic disorders - particularly tumors of the skin, salivary glands, thyroid, parathyroid, and the oral cavity
  • Vascular system, excluding the intracranial vessels and heart
  • Endocrine system, including thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and endocrine pancreas
  • Surgical oncology, including coordinated multimodality management of the cancer patient by screening, surveillance, surgical adjunctive therapy, rehabilitation, and follow-up
  • Comprehensive management of trauma, including musculoskeletal, hand, and head injuries. The responsibility for all phases of care of the injured patient is an essential component of general surgery.
  • Complete care of critically ill patients with underlying surgical conditions, in the emergency room, intensive care unit, and trauma/burn units
 
General surgery is on the "cutting edge" as it continues to reinvent itself to the benefit of the surgical patient. Due to today's high-tech instrumentation and advanced technology, procedures such as major abdominal surgery are now replaced with minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques that often reduce pain, accelerate recuperation, and reduce cost ithout sacrificing good outcomes. Surgical research into disease processes such as immunology and genetics have redefined treatment options specific to individual patients, opening doors to better understanding the etiologies of disease and its progression.

Dr. PK's Thoughts:

 
Dr. PK felt that it was an honor to practice general surgery. To him, being in the operating room is an experience that was beyond compare. He also enjoyed the variety of experiences in the world of general surgery. Any given day may consist of multiple and widely different types of operations. The patients referred to general surgeons also have a multitude of signs and symptoms. Each day is truly an adventure and rarely are any two days alike.
 
 
Dr. PK also took it on himself to become a specialist in bariatric or "weight loss" surgery. Over the course of his career, he performed hundreds of Gastric Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy, Adjustable Gastric Banding, and Duodenal Switch operations.
