General surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal contents including the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, appendix and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland.

Bariatric surgery is a medical term for surgical procedures used to manage obesity and obesity-related conditions.
