General surgery is like a super doctor who can do many different kinds of operations. They can perform surgery on many parts of the body, like the stomach, heart, and bones. They can also do operations to repair cuts or injuries, and to remove diseased organs. Most general surgeons are experts in how the body works, and they help keep us healthy by operating on us if something needs to be fixed.
