How long does it take to recover from Rotator Cuff Surgery?

This will depend upon the extent of the tear in the Rotator Cuff Tendons. Recovery also has two distinct phases. First you'll have to heal from the surgery, which takes roughly 2-3 months. Next, you'll need to work on restoring the shoulder joint to regain your range of motion while strengthening the muscles. Physical therapy for several months will be a part of your recovery program. In short, everyone is a little different. However, full recovery from surgery will typically take between 6-12 months.
