Gallbladder removal: what to expect at Spire Dunedin

You’ll first undergo a consultation where your consultant can assess your health and determine how to go about the procedure, whether keyhole or open surgery is required. Both are straightforward but the latter is slightly more invasive and requires a few days recovery in hospital.

When the day comes and you arrive at Spire Dunedin, our friendly team will show you to your room. They’ll get everything ready while you relax, before providing anaesthetic and taking you to theatre. The operation should take a couple of hours, and we’ll continue to provide care for as long as you need afterwards.
