In brief: 2-4 weeks

If treated while asymptomatic, popliteal artery aneurysm repair is accomplished with a fem-pop bypass and tying off the aneurysm above and below the aneurysm itself.
Recovery in the hospital is often 2-3 days and gradual return to regular activity is usually seen within 2-4 weeks.
