In brief: See below

Jaundice caused my cancer which obstructs the bile ducts and occasionally jaundice caused by gallstones may require surgical therapy.
This is a very broad generalization as this question has a lots of potential variables making it difficult to answer precisely.

In brief: Varies

Causes of jaundice can be obstructive jaundice (gallstones, cancers) or hepatocellular. Most forms of obstructive jaundice will need surgery or endoscopic procedures.
Progressive liver disease causing jaundice could require a liver transplant surgery.
