General surgery is a surgical specialty that encompasses the endocrine system, liver, colon, gastrointestinal tract, bariatric and other major parts of the body. Therefore, a general surgery table should be equipped with many general surgery accessories to be most versatile. General surgeons perform surgeries using either an open approach, laparoscopic or robotic. Each of these approaches can require different general surgical table accessories.
Common abdominal complaints include appendicitis, hernia, gallbladder and stomach and intestinal issues. Patients will be placed in any number of positions for these surgeries, requiring a wide variety of general surgical table accessories.
