  • Biceps Tenodesis

Biceps tenodesis describes the surgical procedure that is usually performed for the treatment of biceps tendonitis of the shoulder. The biceps tendon passes through the shoulder joint and attaches to the labrum. When this attachment is torn, it is a so-called SLAP tear of the shoulder.

Individuals with biceps tendon problems may have developed a SLAP tear or irritation and inflammation of the biceps tendon itself.

During a biceps tenodesis procedure the surgeon cuts the attachment of the biceps tendon to the labrum and then reattaches it to the humerus bone. By performing a biceps tenodesis, the pressure is thereby removed from the labrum or biceps tendon in the shoulder and a portion of the biceps tendon can then be surgically removed.

What patients are most likely to have a biceps tenodesis?

This procedure is most often prescribed for those patients with significant biceps tendon symptoms as well as biceps tendon inflammation evidenced through an arthroscopic examination.

A biceps tenodesis procedure is most often performed in patients over the age of 40. Other procedures, such as SLAP repair, may be performed in patients who are younger.
