General Surgery


Overview

General surgery is the largest surgical specialty in Ireland. It covers the specialist interest area of colorectal surgery, upper gastrointestinal surgery, breast and endocrine surgery, and hepatobiliary and transplant surgery.

All specialty surgeons have experience in basic general surgery and take part in the general surgical on-call rota. However, as a general surgeon, you will need to sub-specialise into one of the specialist interest areas.
