Infectious Disease 23 years experience
Combined therapy: Treating an intra-abdominal abscess is no easy task. Usually this takes a team of doctors - including a surgeon who may be able to drain or to operate, possibly a radiologist to insert a drain, an infectious diseases specialist to pick the right antibiotic, and other general doctors to manage everything else. An ID doc will consider allergies, cultures and clinical data to optimize your treatment.
