In brief: Short term...
Operative repair of a broken(fractured) collar bone takes a few hours once one is actually in the operating room; recovery from the procedure itself also takes a few hours; and probably at least an overnight stay in the hospital.
The recovery from a fractured collar bone is another story...

In brief: Surgery is short
If it needs to be done- the surgery takes about a half hour in most orthopedic hands.
