General surgery is a discipline based on the principle of repairing diseases that cannot be treated with medication or other medical methods by either repairing them through surgery or removing the diseased organ. General surgery works in conjunction with several different specialties. Digestive system surgery, gallbladder and liver surgery, endocrine (thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal -suprarenal- gland), esophagus, small and large intestines, stomach, rectum, liver, gallbladder, abdominal soft tissue tumors, and abdominal wall hernias constitute the main treatment topics. Additionally, breast complaints are among the important health problems suffered by women and in some cases, men. Surgical removal of benign or malignant formations in the breast is considered. Surgeries are performed with open or closed methods. Endoscopic and laparoscopic systems, which are frequently used among closed surgical methods, contribute positively to the rapid progress of postoperative recovery. Therefore, in recent years, closed surgical methods are preferred by doctors and patients more often.
