How long does it take to recover from a torn rotator cuff?
Rotator cuff surgery has come a long way, allowing for faster recovery times and better outcomes.
At G2, we perform all rotator cuff repairs with arthroscopic surgery. Patients go home the same day and for most repairs, they can remove the arm from the sling the day after surgery. As the rotator cuff heals, physical therapy helps patients regain their range of motion and their strength. Most patients can perform light day to day activities within 1-4 weeks and heavy lifting by 4-5 months post surgery.
