Distal biceps tendon repair is a surgical procedure that is performed to reattach a torn biceps tendon that has pulled away from its attachment site near the elbow. The biceps muscle has two sites of location for tendons: the proximal biceps tendon which attaches at the shoulder, and the distal biceps tendon that attaches to the radius bone in the elbow. An injury to the distal biceps tendon can cause pain and weakness at the elbow. The injury is commonly sustained during activities that involve lifting heavy objects when the biceps is under tension and the elbow is forced straight. Distal biceps injuries are commonly observed in weightlifters. It is possible to partially tear or fray the tendon, but most distal biceps tendon tears are complete (torn off the attachment site entirely). Dr. Riley J. Williams, orthopedic elbow surgeon, serving Manhattan, Brooklyn, New York City, NY and surrounding areas, has extensive experience in performing distal biceps tendon repairs and other elbow procedures.
