In brief: Physical therapy.
Assuming that the nerve that innervates the muscles that keep the scapula against the rib cage is not damaged, then physical therapy is usually indicated to correct the winging.

In brief: Tendon transfer
You can substitute part of the pectorals major muscle for the loss of the serratus anterior muscle.
You should wait 18 months to make sure that the sa does not get better on it's own.

In brief: Diagnosis?
There are many and varied reasons for a winged scapula.
In our practice the vast majority of patients have scapular winging secondary to shoulder instability so it is important to have a comprehensive evaluation to determine the root cause of the winging before moving ahead with treatment.
