Proximal Biceps Rupture Surgery
Surgical intervention is not required unless a concomitant rotator cuff tear has occurred or unless patients have persistent pain or cramping along the ruptured biceps tendon. When the biceps tendon is surgically treated, it is attached to the humerus and not to its origin on the glenoid. The direct repair of the tendon is not required. Return to activities after surgical treatment may be upwards of 3-6 months.
