Not necessarily.: The choice to surgically repair a labral tear depends ultimately on whether or not the benefits of surgery outweigh the risks. Usually non-surgical options like rest, physical therapy and NSAIDS are tried first. If the pain and/or disability persist AND it's fairly certain that the labral tear is the cause, then surgery would be a reasonable option. I wish you the best. Dr. Anne
