Is Biceps Tenodesis Done Arthroscopically or With Open Surgery?
Dr. James Mazzara, serving Manchester, South Windsor, Rocky Hill, Glastonbury and surrounding Hartford communities can offer either surgical option for biceps tenodesis treatment. While arthroscopic surgery is the preferred type of surgery to treat biceps tendinitis, sometimes open surgery is a better option for the patient. The type of tear, amount of shoulder damage, age and activity level of the patient are factors of consideration when deciding on the best treatment and surgery. Dr. Mazzara will consult with the patient to plan the best outcome with the quickest recovery time.
What is the recovery time after Biceps Tenodesis Treatment?
Patients who undergo biceps tenodesis treatment can expect an exceptional surgical outcome in most cases. Range of motion can typically begin shortly after surgery, with a full recovery at approximately three months. Dr. Mazzara will prescribe a full rehabilitation program for each patient following surgery with the ultimate goal of regaining strength and range of motion.
