I need my gall bladder out. Should I go to my bariatric surgeon?

Recommended Posts

Dear Dr. Callery

Ive been having some issues with my gall bladder...an ultrasound has confirmed that it needs to come out....Im just wondering, I live 2 and 1/2 hours away from my surgeon....would it be ok to have a surgeon closer to me help deal with it?? I just love my surgeon its just so far away for a consult/checkup, pre-op then surgery the next day. I'm really feeling miserable and need to do something quickly....any suggestions???

Give your bariatric surgeon a call to see if he will do your surgery. If you like and trust him, by all means travel to have him care for you. It will probably only be a few trips. You'll be working with someone who "knows your case" and you'll be comfortable with his staff and hospital.

Best of luck,
