Gallbladder removal: what to expect at Spire Washington

To get started, you’ll be asked to attend a consultation where your medical history will be discussed. This will help the consultant determine the best approach for your procedure, which they will then explain to you and ensure that you understand.

On the day of your procedure, you’ll arrive at the hospital and the team will take it from there. You’ll have your own private room to relax in before and afterwards, and you’ll be given a general anaesthetic as soon as they’re ready for you in theatre. The operation should then take a few hours at most.
