To begin, you’ll be invited for a consultation to discuss your symptoms and medical history. Your consultant will talk you through the benefits and risks of the procedure. They’ll be able to describe what’s required, be that keyhole or open surgery. Both are straightforward but open surgery is a little more invasive and requires a longer hospital stay.
When the day of your procedure arrives, you’ll be escorted to your private room. When ready, you’ll be placed under general anaesthetic and can expect the operation to take around two hours. Our team will then take excellent care of you afterward.
