Can anyone recommend a surgeon to remove a gallbladder in NYC?

My wife went to the ER last night with what turned out to be gallstones. The standard treatment, apparently, is to remove the gallbladder. I'm trying to find a surgeon, but I'm not even sure where to start. Like, I go to the review sites, and there's not a specialty for gallbladders -- apparently, that's just "general" surgery. But general surgery is so broad that it's just impossible to tell who actually does gallbladders, and who just does (say) breast cancer.
Neither of us has a primary care physician to ask.
Please recommend either a surgeon in New York City, or a good surgeon search algorithm.
