How long does it typically take to recover from surgery for a torn labrum and bankart repair?

In brief: 3-4 months

A graduated rehabilitation process beginning with passive then active assisted motion followed by active motion and strengthening takes several months to allow the torn labrum to adequately heal to the glenoid bone.
The goal is to have a stable strong shoulder with minimal risk for recurrence. This entire process usually takes 3-4 months.

Recovery time depends on a variety of factors including the presence of other injuries (e.
g. Nerve injury, rotator cuff tear), whether the procedure is arthroscopic or open, how quickly one regains strength and motion, and the demands of the activity to which one is returning. Only your surgeon can provide a specific answer to this question.
