Depends on what has to be done.
If it's just a simple wrap it can be an hour.
If you have a large hernia that has to be taken down from your chest plus a wrap - like I had - it can be 5 hours.
I had a team of surgeons, not just a single one. It's not a one surgeon job in my opinion. Just look at all the instruments they have to use! Google pictures or videos. Also, you want to have an experienced team with a good success record. My group was several thoracic surgeons, not just a general surgeon. I got a firm recommendation from my gastroenterologist. He also helped me get an appointment.
