General surgery is one such branch of surgery that requires specific instrumentation and precisely specialized solutions. A general surgeon deals with the central core of anatomy, immunology, intensive care, metabolism, neoplasia, nutrition, pathology, physiology, shock, and resuscitation, and wound healing.

Track 2: Pediatric and Neonatal Gastroenterology

The gastrointestinal tracts of children are quite different from those of adults. Various treatments that are prescribed to adults cannot be prescribed to kids; hence the sub-specialty of pediatric gastroenterology was created, to overlook the kids suffering from various abdominal issues. Pediatric gastroenterologists, pediatric hepatologists, and dietitians together help children with biliary atresia, celiac disease, chronic abdominal pain, constipation,  gastrointestinal conditions, hepatitis, inflammatory bowel disease, nausea, obesity, reflux, short bowel syndrome, and vomiting. Kids often suffer from chronic diarrhea and mal-absorption or cystic fibrosis. Neonates/ Newborns with congenital gastrointestinal anomalies make up one of the largest percentage of patients in the pediatric wards. The specialists needed to treat neonates comprises of the multidisciplinary team including neonatologists, pediatric gastroenterologist surgeons, and radiologists who provide care to the infants showing regurgitation, constipation, and diarrhea symptoms.

Track 3: Pancreatic Diseases

Inaccessibility of pancreas makes it harder to evaluate the course of pancreatic diseases. Even blood tests are often misleading; hence the specialists depend on radiographic and imaging tests like CT, MRCP, ERCP, EUS to detect pancreatic diseases. But sometimes, surgical exploration is the only way to evaluate the course of pancreatic diseases. Pancreatic diseases include pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, exocrine pancreatic insufficiency, diabetes mellitus, pseudocysts, neoplasms, annular pancreas and pancreatic cancer. The hepatic-pancreatic-biliary disease affects the liver, bile ducts, pancreas, and gallbladder, thereby having a common symptom viz., jaundice, dark urine, and light stools. Hepato-biliary diseases include Liver cirrhosis, viral hepatitis, inflammation, cystic, vascular and metabolic disorders, gallstones, and gallbladder cancer.
