Re: Does a doctor require a lot of energy?
It really depends on the type of surgery. These are the typical operation times:
Appendix removal: 20 - 60 mins
Cataract surgery: 20- 40 mins
Caesarian birth: 10 - 30 mins
Gallbladder removal: 1 - 3 hours
Knee / hip replacement : ~ 2 hours
Breast cancer resection: 1 - 3 hours
Bowel cancer resection: 3 - 5 hours
Heart bypass: 4 - 6 hours
Whipples (removal of pancreas, part of duodenum, stomach and gallbladder plus some plumbing works for pancreas cancer): 6 - 10 hours
