Everybody is different but my friend tore his completly when he was 9 years old sking and they did not do surgery until he was 18. The reason was they had to drill into his growth plate and they were afraid of stunting his growth. Oh by the way he is a pro mountian biker and kayaker. He is sponsered by subaru, teva, oakley, and many more.I don't think at 15 they would of singed him if they did'nt think he was worth it.
