Brief: Don't worry , it is a brief procedure of less than hr, preparation , position takes more time than procedure itself.
Dr. Peter Ihle
Orthopedic Surgery 54 years experience
Not long: 20-30min.Also depends on if just an extensor slide/release or a re attachment, sounds like an extensor slide. Actual surgical time is+/- 5minutes.
