Open Surgery Positions

Surgery is an invasive medical practice where a doctor uses a manual instrument or technological device to gain access to the inside of the human body to administer treatment and make repairs. Some people refer to surgery as an operation or surgical procedure.

Surgery is sometimes the only solution for treating a patient when they suffer a severe illness or injury. It is a high-risk, high-reward practice for treating patients, but it can also be the most effective solution. This is because incisions are made on the body’s surface to directly reach the affected or ruptured areas. Fortunately, a well-trained surgeon knows how to minimize the risk to their patient.

A surgeon must become a master of physical intervention. Their medical training requires them to learn everything there is to know about each human organ, tissue, and system within the body. With that knowledge, they learn how to use physical intervention to restore the health and function of these organs, tissues, and systems under various circumstances.

There are several types of subspecialties in the surgery practice. They include general surgery, gynecologic oncology, colon and rectal surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, urologic surgery, pediatric surgery, and neurological surgery. They are all advantageous surgical fields with great demand in hospitals, medical facilities, and private practices. The choice depends on which surgery you’d like to specialize in and perform.

For instance, general surgery training gives you the skills and experience to diagnose and treat severely ill patients and trauma victims. General surgeons administer preoperative care, operative care, and post-operative care to any patient in critical condition, especially in an emergency room hospital setting.

General surgeons work to keep patients alive and stable in emergencies. Afterward, these patients may be referred to other surgeons who specialize in treating specific bodily areas, such as the heart, face, lungs, skin, etc. That is why every field of surgery is essential for improving the health and well-being of patients.

The American Board of Medical Specialties issues board certifications in at least 14 surgical subspecialties. You’ll need at least 12 to 16 years of education to meet the minimum requirements to receive a board certification and practice surgery.

Surgical residencies take at least five years to complete, which is longer than typical medical residencies. But given the complexity of the surgery practice, extra residency time is critical to be a successful surgeon.
