Spine and Back Health
I just found out I have a med. size complete tear of the supraspinatus tendon at the humeral attachment point. Will this require sugery?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. On this site, NetWellness experts try to answer general questions about health. Only a health professional performing a thorough clinical exam is able to evaluate your symptoms and make treatment recommendations. This appears to be a question for orthopedics, not for neurosurgery or spine surgery. Unfortunately we do not have an expert who answers questions in your area of inquiry, so your best option is to consult with a physician. Best wishes.
