General Surgery and Surgical Infections
General surgery is a surgical specialty that mainly focused on abdominal contents. General Surgery may specialize in trauma, cardiac, vascular, gastrointestinal, urology and gynecology. They often play a vital role in plastic surgeons, dermatologists, organ transplants, podiatrists, and many other specialty physicians. Infections are categorized as either incisional or organ/space infections to distinguish those arise at the surgical site from those related to the organ or space manipulated during surgery. Incisional infections are similarly categorized as superficial or deep.
