Firstly you’ll be asked to attend a consultation. Your consultant will discuss your medical history and explain what work they’ll need to do. This will determine how long you’ll need to stay in hospital, but if keyhole surgery is an option, you may not need to stay overnight at all.
On the day of your surgery the team will show you to your own private room. Once things are ready, they’ll escort your family and friends to a waiting area, and you’ll be given anaesthetic and taken into theatre. The procedure then takes a few hours at most, and you’ll receive full aftercare from our team.
It's a common operation to have done privately, and our inclusive prices and access to payment plans make it easy and more affordable, even if you don’t have medical insurance.
Spire Leeds Hospital can provide you with a single, fixed price so there are no surprises.
