Day of treatment
En bloc capsule removal surgery can typically be performed under local anesthesia, and will take anywhere from one to three hours. The majority of patients are able to return home after the procedure, but will require someone to drive them home.
After your en bloc capsule removal surgery, you may be given a compression garment and drains that you will wear for two to three days. You will be able to return to regular daily tasks within a few days, but avoid any strenuous activity.
