In brief: 6 months

All our patients are treated arthroscopically despite the size of the rot.
Cuff tear.Almost all our patients are 'released' @ 6 months post-op.This means they can return to full activitites.Some people continue to improve their strength up until 1 yr. Post-op...Sling use is generally for the first 4 weeks after surgery and rehab can last 4-10 wks. Depending on size and chronicity of tear.Gl!
