What is the purpose of a general surgery?

Surgery can be categorized for elective or required purposes because it is usually done for a multitude of reasons depending on the conditions of the patients. A patient may have to undergo general surgery for:

  • Exploring the conditions further for the purpose of diagnosis
  • Taking a biopsy of a suspicious lump
  • Removing a diseased tissue or an organ
  • Removing an obstruction
  • Repositioning the structures to their normal position
  • Transplantation of tissue or whole organs
  • Redirecting the channels
  • Implanting mechanical or electronic devices
  • Improving the physical appearance

Depending on the type of diagnosis, below are the types of general surgery a patient has to make on several surgery options.

Optional or elective surgery:

A procedure that a patient chooses to have may have not been essential to continue a good quality of life. The best example of this can be wart removal or removing an unsightly mole, etc.

Required surgery:

A procedure that is much required and which needs to be done to ensure the quality of life in the future. An example of required surgery would be removing the kidney stones when other forms of medication and treatments are not working or do not help you with good results. Required surgery, unlike emergency surgery, is not necessarily required to be done immediately.

Urgent or emergency surgery:

This type of surgery is done mostly in reaction to an urgent medical condition, such as acute appendicitis. Here urgency is must else the patient’s condition would go critical.

It is important for patients to be informed about the pros and cons of the surgery that is being recommended, particularly for elective surgery because you should familiarize yourself thoroughly before deciding whether the procedure is appropriate for you or not. It is better to clarify with your physician if you have trouble understanding an explanation and/or any medical terms. A well-informed patient tends to get more satisfaction with the outcome of a general procedure.
