What is biceps tenodesis treatment?
Biceps tenodesis is used to treat a tear in the tendon that connects the biceps muscle to the shoulder. During this procedure, Dr. Vidal will release the tendon from its attachment inside the shoulder joint (called a tenotomy) and reattach the tendon to the upper arm bone (humerus). By reattaching the tendon to the arm bone, instead of inside the shoulder joint (glenoid), allows it to move away from the site of aggravation, allowing overhead movement and activity to resume. The procedure allows the muscle to function, while allowing the tendon to avoid cramping, pinching or other causing other shoulder discomfort. Patients in Vail, Aspen and the surrounding Denver, Colorado communities experience great relief from pain after biceps tenodesis.
