Gallbladder removal: what to expect at Spire Hartswood

You’ll start by attending a consultation, so that the team can assess your best options. They’ll talk you through the procedure and explain whether you’ll have keyhole or open surgery. There isn’t much difference between the two, but the latter may mean you need to stay with us a few days.

When the day comes, the team will take care of you before, during and after your operation. You’ll have your own private room to relax in and you’ll be placed general under anaesthetic while they operate. The procedure should take a few hours at most, but can be quicker if keyhole surgery is used.
