Specializing in the field of surgery is challenging, rewarding, and monumental. However, this demanding work is certainly lucrative. In the United States, a general surgeon can earn approximately $3,75,000 per year. Similarly, Canadian general surgeons earn about $3,50,000 per year.
In Europe, general surgeons don’t charge as much and earn about $1,01,153 in the UK. Of course, if you can specialize in a particular field of surgery, your prospects of earning more are greater.
