Thank you for writing to Ask The Doctor.
It is possible to repair the muscle surgically but the muscle needs to be examined first and then tested. If a few fibres have torn, then surgery will not be needed. If the full muscle is torn off, then surgery may be needed.
There are few cases of this occurring and a few Studies have shown that conservative (non-surgical) treatment has less recovery time. This is, however, if the muscle will repair itself without surgical repair. The next steps in management will be imaging like Ultrasounds and MRIs to confirm the tear.
Later, the Doctor will decide the need for surgery.
Hope this helps you. All the best.
