I don't know about this one in particular, but my OS said my LR/TTT would take about 1.5-2 hours.  Presumably, yours will be significantly shorter than that!

Peace,

I had a trim on mine, it was about 45 minutes. My OS said as long as he was in there he checked around the whole knee to make sure there wasn't anything else going on. I suppose if you are having a repair instead it will be longer as there are sutures involved with that.  Let us know how you come out. Ron
