In brief: Ask your doctor

What you are asking about, specifically bio lung insertion, is not common medical practice.
This must be part of an investigational research. Extensive disclosure is common in these situations. If you are having difficulties communicating with your doctor, a research coordinator should be available to you.

In brief: Not sure about

Not sure about bio-lung insertion, but lung cancer surgery depends on approach (vats quicker than thoracotomy) and how much lung (wedge quicker than lobectomy, which is quicker than pneumonectomy) .
