What is a biceps tendon repair?
Your biceps has two tendons: one inserts on your shoulder and the other on your elbow. A complete tear of either of your biceps tendons may require surgical intervention in the form of a biceps tendon repair. Your Active Orthopedic & Sports Medicine specialist repairs the torn tendon and attaches it to the bone using an arthroscopic approach.
How is a biceps tendon repair performed?
Your procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. The Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeons at Active Orthopedic & Sports Medicine specialist uses straightforward steps to perform the procedure:
- A small incision is made
- Muscles and soft tissues are retracted
- The torn tendon is repaired and reattached to the bone
- The incision is carefully closed
Special suture anchors are used to secure the tendon to the bone, which ensures it remains stable, heals and functions. You start physical therapy within two weeks and your bicep strength, flexibility, and function quickly improve.
