Is surgery required for SLAP tears? Perhaps not...
Posted by on 3/26/2017 to Shoulder Surgery
Rotator cuff surgery is generally not considered until all conservative treatment options have been exhausted. Or there is a complete tear in one or more of the muscles comprising of the rotator cuff. Unless it is a highly severe or complete tear, doctors, orthopedic specialists and physical therapists will advise that you try at least 6 or more months of conservative therapy with no sign of improvement before surgery will even be considered.
