Are there any alternative treatments for abdominal abscess?

Several options: The treatment of abdominal abscesses depends on the location, size, and cause. Without seeing the imaging it's hard to know the best course of action. That being said most abscesses are treated with drainage and antibiotics. The drainage can most often be done percutaneously which means through the skin without a big incision.
