It really depends on the type of surgical field and how busy your hospital is. A city hospital is having surgeries done multiple times a day... So surgeons can be quite busy.

Cooper,
Great question. Without a doubt, the more a surgeon performs a surgery, the better they get just like any skill. All surgeons are different, but most of the time they have 1-2 days in clinic to evaluate patients that need surgery and to do postoperative exams. The other days are spent in the operating room. Some surgeons perform 4-5 surgeries on their surgery days. Each specialty has their most common procedures. For example, general surgeons will routinely remove gallbladders and appendixes that are infected. Heart surgeons will do fewer cases in a day because their surgeries take longer to complete.
Hope this helps answer your question.

I believe it depends on the type of surgeon and the ethical values of that surgeon. Some like to work for less and some for more. Generally well above 100k.

Thank you comment icon Hi I am a Sophomore from Boston and I was also wondering about work hours, specifically as a pediatric surgeon? Maeve
