Biceps Tendon Repair

Biceps Tendon Repair

You can trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians for your biceps tendon repair. The biceps muscle is located in the front of the upper arm and allows you to bend the elbow and rotate the arm. This muscle is attached to the shoulder bone and elbow bones by bicep tendons. If the bicep tendons get either partially or completely torn, patients can suffer from pain, loss of mobility and overall weakness when rotating the arm. We have a team of double board certified surgeons with distinguished expertise in repairing bicep tendons and other elbow injuries. With our talent and elite training and the adoption of the latest methods in sports medicine, we are able to help patients gain a full recovery from biceps tendon injury.

A bicep tendon tear can occur at the shoulder or at the elbow. The location and severity of your bicep tendon tear will determine your course of treatment. Conservative measures, such as ice, anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy can restore bicep tendon damage in some cases. However, for those with a complete distal bicep tendon tear or athletes who want to regain full strength and performance, surgical methods may be necessary. You can trust our practice to offer the latest techniques when it comes to bicep tendon repair surgery. Depending on your unique situation, we will implement a method to successfully reattach the tendon with stitches through holes drilled inside the bone or small metal implants that can attach the tendon to the bone. If you have suffered a distal bicep tendon tear, it is very important that you seek treatment, as this tendon can not regrow to the bone by itself and permanent rotational weakness can result.

Risk Factors For Bicep Tendon Tear

If you experience a sudden, severe pain in the upper arm or at the elbow after a fall or lifting a heavy object, you may have a biceps tendon tear. Only a board certified orthopedic can accurately diagnose your condition, but there are several risk factors that are associated with this injury including the following:

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are committed to both your immediate pain relief and your long-term health and recovery. Whether you need non-invasive treatment recommendations for your bicep tendon damage or an advanced surgical procedure to help you regain full arm strength, you can trust our orthopedic surgeons for skilled expertise and compassionate care regarding your bicep tendon injury or other elbow problems.
