Is PT likely to work for this?

My MRI revealed:

1.Tear at the aponeurosis of the external obliques (connective tissue)

2.Possible transversalis fascia tears (underside of inguinal canal)

3.Inguinal ligament tear

With the body's natural tendency to want to heal itself, can these problems be healed with PT or are these "surgery-only" fixes?

One surgeon says, 'must operate'. Another surgeon who is more holistic says, take repair enzymes, amino acids, natural inflammation reducers, along with deep tissue massage and PT will aid the body to repair itself.

So, again, is the body able to do such self repairs or does it need help (i.e. surgery)?
