ankle surgery

I recently had an MRI on my left ankle that stated that I have a 1.6 cm longitudinal tear in my perenous brevius tedon (SP). Is this a significant tear or is this something that may heal on its own? One surgeon says I need surgery the other says no. What is the normal prodicol for recommending surgery for this type of injury? Thank you so much for any information you can provide.

The built-in arch stabilizer provides support for greater stability.
