Gallbladder removal: what to expect at Spire Tunbridge Wells

The process begins with a consultation. The team will go through your medical history and do a few checks to determine the best way forward. This will involve either keyhole or open surgery, but they’ll make sure you fully informed about whichever is required.

When the day comes, you’ll arrive at Spire Tunbridge Wells and the team will take it from there. You’ll be given general anaesthetic and be operated on for no more than a few hours. Once the procedure is done, you’ll be taken to your private room where you can recuperate for however long is recommended.
