Suggest treatment for torn biceps tendon

I had a torn bicep tendon. 11/2 years ago. Now when I work, for example twisting a screwdriver, it causes my bicep to bunch up like a Popeyes mussel. It s very pain full. Although I am 60 yrs. old I still have more working years ahead of me. I work in a cabinet shop an would like to have more of my function in my arm. Where can I get the proper surgery done?

Hello,

I have studied your case.

As per your reports and history it looks like there can be partial tear in your biceps muscle.


If swelling and bruise is not reducing and giving pain while I will advise you to further investigate for the cause of swelling.
I will advise you to do MRI and Ultrasound of the swelling.
Partial tear can be managed conservatively with physiotherapy with USG and TENS.

for surgery contact your orthopaedic doctor.
Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Take care.
