Non-operative injuries should be immobilized in a sling and be closely followed with outpatient sports medicine/orthopedics. These patients should undergo physical therapy as soon as possible for quicker recovery.
Operative injuries are less common. Two-part fractures with greater tuberosity displacement > 5mm are operative because of increased risk of functional impairment without any surgical intervention . Numerous factors including age, fracture type, bone quality, comorbidities, and concurrent injuries are used to determine the optimal type of surgical intervention, including ORIF and arthroplasty [10,11].
