Gallbladder removal: what to expect at Spire Murrayfield, Wirral

To start with, you’ll attend a consultation where your consultant will discuss your medical history and talk you through the procedure. They’ll then set a date for you to come back.

On the day, once you arrive at the hospital the team will take care of everything. You’ll be shown your private room and given general anaesthetic once things are ready. It should all be over in a couple of hours and you’ll be free to recuperate in the hospital for however long it is you need. This can vary depending on the type of procedure you had. Open surgery requires a longer stay in hospital compared to a keyhole procedure.
