Latest surgical techniques and intervention can benefit people with Biceps InjuryPeople who suffer from injuries to the distal biceps tendon can expect relief from earlier surgical intervention and new surgical techniques, as per a review article published in the March 2010 issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (JAAOS).

Karen Sutton, MD, assistant professor at Yale Medical School and attending orthopaedic surgeon at Yale New Haven Hospital, said that latest techniques allow for smaller incisions and tendon strength can be restored to within 90 percent to 95 percent of its original strength.

It was also revealed by the study that surgery is the most effective of all options and even simpler when performed within two weeks of the initial injury.
