A family member has been told they require a gall bladder operation due to cysts in their gall bladder and has questions about options and had been offered a variety of ideas. If anyone has been through this procedure perhaps they could offer their input:
They are having their gall bladder removed laparoscopically. The surgeon to whom the gastroenterologist referred them is highly regarded, but he is a vascular surgeon. What type of surgeon usually does this procedure? Is it unadvisable to use a vascular surgeon?
