It should take about 30 minutes for the overall surgery to occur. From the time you would go into the operating room until you leave the operating room, between 45 minutes and an hour.
Should take about 30 minutes but can take a little longer if the appendix has ruptured
For an uncomplicated Acute Appendicitis laparoscopically should be one hour or less.
Typically 1 hour, but can take longer if there are adhesions from inflammation. 

Hi usually 30-90 minutes. Depending on severity of disease
Usually around 30 min.
It depends on how severe the inflammation is but up to 4 hours.
Generally about 30 to 60 minutes.
