General surgery ain't what it used to be. There have been several changes and challenges in general surgery in recent years. Firstly, there has been a natural tendency for general surgeons to want to focus on, and hence sub-specialise in, a particular area of general surgery. Consequently, it is difficult to find a surgeon in a tertiary centre who is comfortable doing all types of general surgery. The current sub-specialties in general surgery include hepatobiliary surgery, colorectal surgery, vascular surgery, breast surgery, endocrine surgery, trauma surgery, paediatric surgery, transplantation, and others that are being proposed.
