The general surgeon spends less time in the ambulatory surgical unit than do the gynecologist and the orthopedist, but more than other specialists, including the otolaryngologist and plastic surgeon. Lesions of the skin, subcutaneous tissues, and oral cavity are frequently removed by the general surgeon and are included in the sections on plastic surgery and otorhinolaryngology. Lesions in the field of orthopedics, such as ganglia, are considered in the sections on orthopedics and hand surgery. Other procedures often done by general surgeons are described in the sections on gynecology, urology, proctology, and vascular surgery.
