Tummy specialist

Morning Doc,
I would like to do some research on specialists to assist my mother with an abdominal problem. Her problem is that she, due to ulcers or something, does not have a proper valve left closing her abdomen, whihc causes a ost of problems for her, from difficulty keeping food in to severe pain. Im trying to find out of there is a Dr who would be able to fix the valve or replace it even, if possible.

m not sure what that kind of specialist would be called? Could you please help me out?

Thanks,
Francois
