Does a torn labrum require surgery? How long is the recovery?

Question:
Hi, my son has a torn labrum, “SLAP TEAR” and is a baseball player for Letourneau University. Does this normally require surgery and how long of a recovery before back to playing baseball?

Answer:

Athletes involved in overhead sport – baseball, tennis, swimming, volleyball, among others – typically don’t do well with labral tears and usually require surgery to resolve their issues and get back to their sport. Recovery is generally in the 4-6 month range.
