Biceps and Triceps Tears & Ruptures

The biceps and triceps are important tendons that give you strength to bend and straighten your elbow as well as turning your forearm (tightening a screwdriver). Both partial and complete tears of these structures can occur from falls or lifting heavy objects, leading not only to significant pain but also severe and possibly permanent weakness of the elbow and arm.

Dr. Nelson is a specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of biceps and triceps injuries. If surgery is required, he will use the latest techniques including Single Incision Power Optimizing Cost-Effective (SPOC) technique for the biceps and knotless transosseous suture-bridge technique for the triceps.
