Treatment for gallbladder disease may include lifestyle/changes and medication, but, if your symptoms get worse, your doctor may recommend a cholecystectomy, a surgery to remove your gallbladder. Your next step will be to decide what type of surgeon to use. General surgery is a discipline that requires knowledge of a broad spectrum of diseases that can occur in almost any organ or body system that might require surgical treatment. A General Surgeon can treat hundreds of diseases, ranging from benign tumors and cancers to injuries, from gastrointestinal problems to gallbladder surgery.
