In brief: Surgeon
It is pretty unusual to perform a gastrectomy for gastroperesis.
Another option might be a gastrojejunostomy. This bascially re-routes a piece of small intestine up to the stomach so that food can empty from the stomach more easily. Surgeons, especially minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgeons could help talk about the advantages of each approach.
