Gallbladder removal: what to expect at Spire Liverpool Hospital

To begin with, you’ll arrange a consultation where your consultant can plan the best course of action for your operation. This can involve keyhole surgery that uses small incisions and requires minimal time in hospital. Sometimes open surgery is required, which is a bit more invasive and requires a few days recovery in hospital.

On the day, the team will show you to your private room where you can relax until the theatre is ready. You’ll be brought through and given general anaesthetic, and the operation should take a few hours at most.
