How Long Does Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery Take?
Although the operation time varies according to the anatomical structure of the patient, it takes longer than sleeve gastrectomy surgery and shorter than RYGB. However, the time to return to the service bed, together with the pre-operative preparations and post-anesthetic recovery, is approximately three to four hours. Patients generally do not need intensive care after the standard procedure. However, if necessary, close follow-up in the intensive care unit for one night may be appropriate in patients with co-morbid health problems. The patient can get out of bed four to six hours after returning to the service bed and can meet their basic needs.
