There is no other alternative as rotator cuff tear need to be operated and there is no other solution except the surgery. You need not to afraid as arthroscopic surgery is key hole surgery and there is no need to do any bed rest and also incision is very small.
I would recommend you to get this surgery and you will be fine soon. Delaying this procedure will cause bed result.
