In brief: 1hr to scope

Typically this arthroscopic procedure takes about an hour and can be done with a combination of regional/general anesthetic.
The inflamed bursa and bone spurs are removed. Therapy starts about 2 weeks after surgery and full recovery is 3-4 months.

In brief: About an hour

Most impingement surgery should be done in about an hour. If the rotator cuff needs to be repaired, then an additional hour may be required.
