In brief: Sometimes

It depends on the extent of your surgery.
Many of my patients who had simple small hiatal hernias repaired with concurrent antireflux procedure do go home the same day.

In brief: No

Most of the hiatal hernia repairs are performed in association to some other procedures and given the complexity of procedures, most of the times, patients are admitted at least over night.
