Biceps Tendon Tear (at the Shoulder)
Top Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia Orthopedic Surgeons Specializing in Biceps Tendon Tear (at the Shoulder)
Tendons are strong bands of tissue that connect muscle to bone. With this injury, one of the tendons anchoring your biceps muscle is torn. It may be torn partially or completely. Because the biceps is attached with two separate tendons, you may find that you can still use your biceps muscle even if one tendon is completely torn.
