Are you wondering how long the surgery takes or how long the repair lasts? If you are asking how long it lasts they say a nissen is on average good for 10 years, but I believe that number is going up with new techniques. My HH repair I had with my 1st nissen 6/06 is still holding and has been through 2 redoes and a very aggressive treatment and surgery for an esophageal tear that tore my 1st redo completely apart.
