In brief: Coronary?
The operation may be 2-5!hours per surgeon and patient needs.
Each bypass and connection requires time and talent. 5-10 minutes each is ok but many are done "on pump" and the attachments take a bit of time. Opening and closing is relatively quick all in all a few hours is reasonable! shorter than many bad movies!
