it depends on what part of the cuff is torn how big the tear is etc. How old are you and what do you do?
Procedure will depend on these things. So in general short outpatient procedure about an hour. If the cuff is repaired, then no lifting more that couple pounds for 3 months. Therapy for a little bit longer return to activity in about 6 months or so. All generalalities.
