Biceps Tendon Rupture

Biceps Tendon Rupture

You may experience initial pain after a biceps injury, but you may still be able to move your elbow. However, it is important to seek medical attention because a ruptured biceps tendon is a serious injury. The biceps tendon is under some stretch when attached and after it ruptures, it recoils up the arm, creating a gap between the torn tendon and the bone where it is supposed to be attached. Without proper treatment, the tendon will not heal on its own, leading to long-term complications.

The best way to handle a ruptured biceps tendon is through surgical repair. Our outpatient surgery involves reattaching the tendon back to the proper point of attachment on the bone using a minimally invasive approach. Most patients recover quickly and regain all their motion and strength within a couple of months after surgery. With a successful recovery, you can return to sports, exercise, and demanding physical labor.

If you suspect you have ruptured your biceps tendon, contact our office right away for prompt diagnosis and treatment. Don’t let a biceps injury keep you from enjoying the activities you love!
