The Physicians

Raleigh-Durham Bicep Tendon Tear Repair

As one of the main muscle groups responsible for arm movement and mobility, fully-functioning biceps are important to ensure maximum range of motion and to perform everyday tasks.

However, as a result of heavy lifting, throwing or tendon degeneration, a torn bicep tendon may occur in one of two areas:

  • A proximal bicep tendon rupture at the shoulder joint
  • A distal bicep tendon injury around the elbow joint

Depending on your age and activity level, treatments may include anything from observation and temporary compression in the case of many proximal tendon ruptures, to bicep tendon tear repair surgery at our facility in Durham, NC for a distal torn bicep tendon.
