    It will differ from case to case but 6-7 hrs is reasonable to expect.

    The whole process of heart transplant usually takes around six hours or more. However, the time might depend on the complications occur during the surgery. In this process, the doctor will open the chest cavity and connect the patient to a heart-lung bypass machine and then the old heart is removed, and the donor heart is sewn into its place.

    However, if you wish to know the detail information about the aspects of this surgical procedure, you can take help of some good website where you can find the exact detail. If you are unable to find such website, you can directly look for they will guide you in the right direction.
