World Renowned Private Spleen Surgery

When your doctor confirms you have a spleen problem, what should you do next?

Have you been diagnosed with a non-working spleen, an over active spleen, an enlarged spleen or a cyst on your spleen?

Are you having painful problems with your spleen or splenic cyst, which have left you needing urgent spleen removal or partial splenectomy?  If you’re keen to get your spleen problems dealt with as professionally and promptly as possible, then private spleen surgery is your best option.

 

Don’t wait 18 weeks to resolve the problem!

 

In rare cases, the spleen can become enlarged or cause blood problems, by removing the healthy blood cells and leaving you at greater risk of infection, suffering from bleeding and bruising. Although a useful organ, life can continue without the spleen, where necessary, as the liver takes over most of its functions.

Professor Lloyd has performed more than 300 laparoscopic splenectomies

Arrange your spleen consultation by calling 0116 265 3044 or by filling out the contact form. If you prefer a virtual consultation by Skype or Zoom, please send you details on using the Skype page.

Once spleen problems are diagnosed, you may need an operation to remove your spleen, known as a splenectomy (this can be done as laparoscopic splenectomy or open splenectomy). Sometimes, just part of your spleen can be removed, which is called a partial splenectomy. Professor Lloyd has performed many partial splenectomies leaving enough spleen behind to maintain its normal function.

Removing the spleen using keyhole techniques (laparoscopic splenectomy) can be done safely and relatively quickly. This means less scarring and faster splenectomy recovery time. Most patients undergoing a splenectomy procedure stay in hospital for 24-48 hours and return to normal activities within two weeks.

An open splenectomy may be necessary if your spleen is too large or damaged to be removed using laparoscopic splenectomy procedure.

Your consultation with Professor David Lloyd

 

What happens during a consultation? Professor Lloyd will ask you some relevant questions about your general health and your lifestyle.

He’ll then explain the details of the procedure so you’ll know exactly what to expect when you arrive for your surgery. You will be given clear details about what to do and what not to do before your operation. You will also be provided with information that relates to your postoperative care such as, tending to your wounds and dealing effectively with any possible but very unlikely side-effects.
