The article examines the issue on whether colorectal surgery should be practiced by specialists or by general surgeons. It is pointed out that a general surgeon who starts to perform mostly colorectal surgeries will eventually find himself practicing little else. The issue cannot be resolved at the moment because the two follow-up surveys failed to offer objective information.
