Hi,


The profession of doctors is differentiated between general practitioners and specialists. The difference between a general practitioner and a specialist is that a general practitioner studies various diseases during the period of education to completion of approximately 5 years, while a specialist doctor has to undergo further education for several years depending on the field he takes. Specialists study more focus on things that they deepen such as ophthalmologists who study more about the body of the eye, gynecologists, surgeons, cardiologists, and many other fields. For surgery or surgery depending on what action to be performed. For example, minor surgery or for example removing the abscess, lipoma removal, circumcision, can also be done by a general practitioner, but for major types of surgery it is the competence of the surgeon, for example appendectomy, surgery for problems in the intestine or digestive tract. But again it depends on what type of operation to be performed. For example, surgery for kidney stones or gallstones can be performed by a urologist. Problems with bleeding or brain numbers are the competence of a neurosurgeon.


So once again it depends on the case and disease experienced. If you are confused about a certain surgery, it's okay to consult with a general practitioner first, then you will be directed to where you should perform these actions.


Hope this helps, thank you
