Gallbladder removal: what to expect at Spire Regency Hospital

You’ll be invited in for an initial consultation, where our consultant will do some checks and explain the operation to you. This will involve either keyhole or open surgery, with the latter being a little more invasive and requiring a few days stay in hospital after.

On the day of your procedure, you’ll arrive at Spire Regency and the team will show you to your room. You’ll be given anaesthetic (usually general) once everything is ready, and they’ll operate for a few hours at most. You’ll then get everything you need to help you recover.
