There are several specialities or subspecialities under Surgery. The doctors in these categories normally hold the title of Mr or Ms. This include :
* General surgery
* Paediatric surgery
* Cardiothoracic surgery
* Vascular surgery
* Oral and maxillofacial surgery
* Otorhinolayrngology or ENT surgery
* Plastic reconstructive surgery
* Orthopaedic and Traumatology surgery
* Urology etc.
I still remember telling my coursemates during university days that I don't want to become a surgeon in the future.. cos I don't want to study for so long to get the title Dr & then revert back to square one to the title of Miss again after I become surgeon. Hahhaa, actually that was not the main reason why I don't want to become surgeon. It is just that my main interest is not in Surgery.
I have performed several simple surgical procedures or surgeries in the past, such as appendicectomy, Caesarean Section, ERPOC & DD&C, excision of lumps and bumps (such as breast lumps or fibroadenoma, lipoma, ganglion, sebaceous cyst, dermoid cyst etc), circumcision, herniorapphy, orthopaedic surgeries (such as plating, K wiring, toes or limb amputation, finger refashioning, Incisional & Drainage, wound debridement, tendon repair etc etc).
