What kind of doctor should I see for bowel obstruction?

General surgeon. Most obstructions involve a physical blockage from scar tissue, polyp, tumor etc. You may be able to temporarily relieve the symptoms with medical intervention but if it needs to be fixed it will almost always involve surgery.
Gastroenterologist. Likely a gastroenterologist unless itis an acute obstruction. You would then be paid a visit from a surgeon.
