Gallbladder removal: what to expect at Spire Fylde Coast

All the gallbladder removal procedures Spire undertakes are done through keyhole or open surgery. Keyhole surgery only requires small incisions, so you may be able to leave the hospital the same day. Open surgery requires a slightly longer hospital stay, but the team will take good care of you throughout.

Your consultant will be able to explain beforehand which type of operation you need and why. On the day, simply arrive at Spire Fylde Coast and you’ll be shown to your private room. You’ll be given anaesthetic and go through to theatre once ready, for a procedure that takes a few hours at most.
