In brief: A HAND tendon may
Require surgery, splinting or observation depending upon the location, the percentage of injury and the preconditions prior to the injury.
However a prompt assesment by a hand surgeon or a comparably trained health care provider is needed to determine the proper course of action. Hand surgeons are well versed in these decisions http://getahanddoc.Blogspot.Com/.

In brief: Surgery
If a tendon has been completely cut it needs to be repaired in the operating room by a hand surgeon.

In brief: Depends
Which tendon is it? Most flexor tendons require surgical repair. For extensor tendons, if it is a laceration it should be repaired.
If it is a rupture, many may be treated with splinting, but it depends on the location.
