Notes and Trivia[]

  • Depending on state and country, surgical specialties may be defined and trained in using different methods. This list is meant to cover most surgical specialties broadly and is not a definitive list and does not include sub-specialties.
  • Although Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice portray neurosurgery as a sub-specialty of general surgery requiring a surgical residency and then a fellowship in order to practice the specialty, in the real world, neurosurgery is its own specialty with its own residency.
  • Although Grey's Anatomy portrays urology as a sub-specialty of general surgery requiring a surgical residency and then a fellowship in order to practice the specialty, in the real world, urology is its own specialty with its own residency.
  • While anesthesiology is a surgical specialty, the Chief of Surgery at Grey Sloan Memorial has no say over that department, according to Ben Warren.
