Displaced fractures can lead to chronic pain, reduced shoulder function, and posterior instability. Operative treatment is frequently recommended with the displacement of more than 5 mm or angulation of more than 45 degrees. We report on a 31-year-old man with bilateral lesser tuberosity fractures who underwent operative fixation for 1 fracture and nonoperative fixation for the other.
