PAs in General Surgery manage a broad range of medical and surgical conditions and are usually involved in all aspects of patient care, both in the outpatient and inpatient setting.
In the current "specialty care" environment, many PAs in General Surgery will be involved with a wide range of abdominal procedures. However, in some smaller hospitals, General Surgery PAs deal with patients undergoing a broad range of procedures including orthopaedic, head & neck, thoracic and urologic services.
The flexibility and the adaptability of the surgical PA make them the obvious choice to assist the general surgeon in all aspects of caring for the surgical patient.
