How Long Will You Stay in Hospital?
That depends entirely on the procedure to be carried out and your rate of recovery but all these procedures are conducted under general anaesthesia, so a hospital stay of anything from 2 days to 1 week could be required.

On your first consultation, your consultant will advise you on the likely length of stay in hospital.
