GP Surgery?

Recommended Posts

I was came upon this link "http://www.ominecamedicalclinic.com/omc_services_surgery.html#bbatchelor" and it was talking about two GP's in rural BC and the scope of surgical procedures they will do. I was just curious how common this actually is? I am assuming that it must be limited to fairly rural locations, and job prospects not exactly high given OR shortages.

Pretty much a rural only thing afaik. Ideally you would be acquainted with a rural town that needs a GP surgeon, then go do the +1 and return to practice in that town where the health authority would have to give you privileges.

Caseload would be mostly repeat c-sections, umbilical or inguinal hernia repair, laparoscopic tubal ligation, vasectomy, circumcision, dilation and curretage, putting in IUDs if using sedation, lipoma removal, and assisting incoming visiting specialists if available.
