What is the difference between a physician and a general surgeon?

While both are practitioners of medicine, they serve different roles.


Physicians practice general medicine although sometimes they may also be specialists in internal medicine. They may be specialists or practice primary care, with the latter being generalists, such as family doctors, gynecologists, and pediatricians. Specialists, on the other hand, focus on specific diseases, such as cancers or breathing disorders, or specific parts of the body, such as the digestive system or heart. Physicians treat illnesses, injuries and other conditions with medicines, physical therapy, and other non-surgical techniques.


Surgeons perform most of the same duties as physicians, including recording patients’ medical histories and diagnosing illnesses, injuries, and other conditions. The difference is that physicians’ therapies typically encourage the body to heal itself whereas surgeons act directly to correct illnesses, injuries, and deformities through open incisions with scalpels (traditional), or with tiny instruments inserted into the body through fine tubes or, with the aid of robots.
