In brief: Surgery or casting

Depending on which tendons are torn, how long ago and the tendon position will determine if immobilization will work or if you need surgery.

In brief: Many ways

It really depends on which tendon, and how bad the tear is.
Sometimes, the 2 ends can be sewn together, other times the tendon can be shredded and the surgeon must find an alternative. There are many options, but it all depends on which tendon we are talking about.
