They are generally known as Emergency Doctors or Emergency Medical Specialists.

It is a distinct medical specialisation - covering stuff like acute diagnostics, resuscitation and trauma type work. An ER Doc will perform minor procedures in the ER department, but wouldn't usually step foot into theatre.

They will refer patients in ER to other specialists including surgeons.

Actually (thinking it through) - surgeons do do a little work in an ER - they will consult on patients referred to them and may do so in the emergency department.

Surgeon works in the clue - it was solved after all and fits better than doctor. Breast Surgeon is becoming a more common sub-specialty of General Surgery as some surgeons are focusing entirely on breast procedures. It's a high volume and growing surgical demand.

(Speaking in an NZ context - other places may vary)
