How long is the RNY surgery, typically?



Recommended Posts

Having my RNY surgery Wednesday and want to give hubby an idea of how long he'll be in the waiting room. Forgot to ask surgeon. I'm having a robotic-assisted, laparoscopic RNY.

Thanks! I was thinking 2.5 to 3 housr, but don't know.

Well you'll be staying in the hospital overnight at least but I'm pretty sure I read the surgery is usually about 90mins but it can vary for numerous reasons just tell him to wait, bring a book or iPad if he needs to keep occupied lol

And Mikeyy is correct, a ball park figure is 3-4 hours, could be,less, robotic are among the best and quickest but you surgeon will take just as long as it takes to get it done rights My RnY surgery was at 7AM , I was done, awake, and in my own room by 10:15. I was 72, if anyone was gonna have problems, by logic, it should have been ME! You youngins should have it "Made in the Shade!" God Bless you all and Happy and Smooth Surgeries!

my surgery was about 90 minutes. But of course, if you factor in prep time and recovery, then yes, probably 3-4 hours. But the surgery itself is pretty quick.

I was told by my surgeon to expect a 4 hr surgery because its a revision and it takes a long time to separate the stomach from the liver.

BallPark figure I was told, for uncomplicated, 90 minutes to 2 hours. I'm sure it will be exactly the amount of time each case necessitates.
