To start with, you’ll be booked in for a consultation where the team will decide the best way forward for your operation. You’ll also be given a date to come back on.
On the day simply arrive at the hospital and the team will take great care of you. You’ll be shown to your private room and given general anaesthetic once everything’s ready. You can expect the procedure to take just a couple of hours, and we’ll be on hand to provide excellent aftercare. Depending on whether you had keyhole or open surgery, you may be able to leave hospital the same day. Open surgery will require a few days stay in hospital.
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.
