Triceps tendon repair is a surgical procedure performed to repair a torn or ruptured tendon which attaches the triceps muscle to the ulna bone of the elbow. Triceps tendon tears are rare and can occur when there is a forced bend to a straight elbow, such as a fall onto an outstretched hand. A triceps tendon tear causes pain and the inability to straighten the elbow. Partial tears can occur and can be treated with conservative methods. Full triceps tendon tears typically require surgery to repair the ruptured tendon. Dr. Riley J. Williams, orthopedic elbow surgeon, serving Manhattan, Brooklyn, New York City, NY and surrounding areas, has extensive experience in performing triceps tendon tear repairs and other elbow injuries.
