First you’ll need to attend an initial consultation. Your consultant will talk you through the benefits and risks, and explain whether you’ll require keyhole or open surgery. Keyhole surgery can be carried out through small incisions and you can often leave the same day. Open surgery requires a bit more work and a few days stay in hospital afterwards.
On the day of your procedure, the team will show you to your private room. You can relax until everything’s ready, at which point you’ll be given general anaesthetic and taken to theatre. The operation should take around two hours.
