As experts in laparoscopic surgery, we’ve also begun offering gallbladder removal as one of our services.
Gallbladder removal is the most effective way to treat painful gallstones. Gallstones are small ‘stones’ that form in the gallbladder. They are quite common. Some people have gallstones and are without symptoms but for others, they result in frequent flare-ups of abdominal pain.
It’s impossible to predict who will get gallstones but we know that they are more common as we get older and among people who follow a diet that is rich in fat. They are also more likely to occur in people who have lost weight rapidly. People who have had weight loss surgery such as gastric sleeve and gastric bypass are more prone to gallstones in the years after surgery.
Longer NHS waiting lists mean that people suffering from gallstones will be living in pain for a significantly longer time, possibly over 2 years. There biggest benefit of having your procedure done privately is the short waiting list, you can book a consultation with a surgeon and have your procedure booked within days.
