Gallbladder removal: what to expect at Spire Gatwick Park Hospital

You’ll come into Spire Gatwick Park Hospital for an initial consultation. This will involve some examinations and a discussion of your medical history. From this, your consultant will explain the best approach to your procedure.

On the day, simply turn up and the team will take care of things. They’ll show you to your private room where you can relax. When everything’s ready, you’ll receive anaesthetic (usually general) and the procedure takes a few hours at most.

You may be able to go home shortly after, but if you’ve received open surgery, the team will take care of you for a few days.
