Gallbladder removal cost uk

The price listed excludes the cost of any pre-operative diagnostic tests that may be required to establish your eligibility for surgery. If such tests are required your surgeon will explain what is needed, and why, at your consultation. We will provide a separate quotation for these tests should you wish that we arrange them.

We will provide a fixed price to you before you proceed with surgery. The price quoted applies to the majority of patients and reflects a standard procedure. In certain circumstances, for example, when a patient has pre-existing conditions that are likely to result in an extended stay in theatre or on the ward, the price will be higher. If this applies to you, your surgeon will explain the reasons to you. In any event, you will receive confirmation of the fixed price before committing to proceed with surgery.

Who Can Have Their Gallbladder Removed on the NHS?

In the UK, the NHS provides gallbladder removal surgery for those who meet specific criteria. These criteria typically include:

  1. Symptoms: Individuals experiencing symptoms such as severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, and jaundice may be considered for gallbladder removal.

  2. Investigation: Before surgery, individuals will undergo various tests to confirm the presence of gallstones or other gallbladder-related issues. These tests may include ultrasound, blood tests, and sometimes MRI or CT scans.

  3. Severity of symptoms: The decision to remove the gallbladder is often based on the severity and frequency of symptoms. Surgery may be recommended if symptoms are severe and impacting a person’s quality of life.

  4. Other treatment options: Doctors may sometimes recommend alternative treatments such as medications to dissolve gallstones. However, if these treatments are ineffective or if the condition is severe, surgery may be necessary.

  5. Complications: Individuals who experience complications such as gallbladder inflammation, infection, or pancreatitis may also be eligible for gallbladder removal on the NHS.
