Gallbladder removal: what to expect at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital

Once you get in touch, we’ll arrange a consultation to go through your medical history and determine the best course of action. We’ll then arrange a date for you to come back for your surgery.

On the day, you’ll be escorted to your private room and we’ll prepare you from there. You’ll be placed under anaesthetic (usually general) and the procedure should take around two hours. The team will take superb care of you before, during and after your operation.

A stay of a few days may be required if you’ve had open surgery, but many patients can leave the same or next day.
