Gallbladder removal: what to expect at Spire Leicester

The process begins with a consultation, where you’ll have the procedure explained to you and some examinations will be carried out. The consultant will explain whether you need open or keyhole surgery, which can affect how long you’ll need to recover in hospital for.

Once you arrive at Spire Leicester on the day of your surgery, our team will take things from there. You’ll have your own room to relax in before and after the operation, and when they’re ready for you in theatre, you’ll be given general anaesthetic. The procedure should take no more than a few hours.
