The biceps tendon can tear at its insertion at the elbow as a result of a sports injury or an accident. Often, this injury occurs when a person is lifting a heavy object or if the elbow is hyper-extended. A tear of the biceps tendon at the elbow, if not treated with surgical repair, can result in deformity of the muscle, weakness, and loss of function. Dr. Bushnell performs biceps tendon repair using the Biceps Button technique, which involves a small incision on the front of the elbow.
