Surgery - Colorectal
In brief: Usually
1/2 -1 hour for preop and preparation, another 1/2-1 hour for procedures and 1/2 hour for recovery but best to discuss with your endoscopist ahead of time.

In brief: 2 hours
I recommend to my patients to allow for an hour prior to the exam and 30 minute recovery post procedure.
I allot 30 minutes for one exam or 45 minutes for 2 procedures (egd and colonoscopy).
