Proximal Biceps Repair

A proximal biceps tendon tear can cause significant pain in the front of the shoulder.  Biceps repair (also called tenodesis) can be done using several techniques.  I have developed a very strong repair technique, performed through a one-inch incision, that requires no post-operative immobilization and allows for early and aggressive therapy.  This in turn means patients can return to full activity much sooner, usually around 3 months after surgery.
