Keyhole surgery to remove your gallbladder because of a blocked bile duct.
Thanks to a routine operation, you could stop pain from gallstones for the rest of your life. This procedure is known as gallbladder removal, and the team here at Spire have a wealth of experience with it.
Spire is an excellent choice for private gallbladder removal in Slough and other eastern parts of Greater London. Our consultants can perform this procedure in as little as two hours, with only a short hospital stay needed afterwards.

You’ll begin by attending an initial consultation, where your consultant will determine how to approach your procedure and explain their decision to you.
On the day, the team will escort you to your private room and guide your family and friends to a waiting area. Once everything’s ready, you’ll be supplied with a general anaesthetic and taken down to theatre. It should all be taken care of within a few hours, and the nurses will be ready to provide whatever aftercare you need for as long as you need it.
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.
