In brief: Depends

10-11cm tears . ? Prob.
U meant 10-11mm or~ 1 cm tears?If the tears are small and symptomatic arthroscopic rot. Cuff repair may be indicated in your age. If they are really big(3-4 inch) tears involving more than one rc tendon than your arthroscopic repair may take longer to heal and rehabilitate(4-6 months).Seek an ors surgeon skilled in shoulder surgery. Good luck!
