Default Torn rotator cuff

Hello friends

I have a torn right rotator cuff. I can raise my arm with no pain and still perform some movements in the gym. Haven’t trained chest for 6 months or so.. Here is what the mri showed and I am wondering if this need surgery?
a.)14mm x 8mm x 2mm instrasubstance partial tear of the supraspinatus tendon footprint is present, as well as an approximately 6mm x 2mm x 1mm instraubstancecparital tear at the junction posterior supraspinatus and anterior infraspinatus tendon footprint.
B.)Also, there is a singal abnormality of the biscep tendon on the axial sequence which may be artifactual in nature; however tendinitis/partial tearing is not excluded.
C.)Small amount of subacromial subdeltoid bursal fluid.

Would prolotherapy help heal this?

Just nervous about getting surgery. Hearing mixed reviews of it’s needed for partial tears or not.

Doc only cares about surgery also said the tear is “pretty bad” when it’s a partial tear only..

I'd see a non-surgical sports med doc and see what they have to say
