General surgeons perform a variety of procedures to stabilize patients. They also staff surgical intensive care units and trauma intensive care units. Some general surgeons pursue advanced training, most commonly in the surgical critical care field. In most cases, surgeons are expected to be competent in diagnosing and treating the full spectrum of diseases. However, there are some types of disease for which comprehensive knowledge and experience is not generally gained in a standard surgical residency.
