USC Orthopaedic Surgery / Treatments / Biceps Tendon Tear at the Elbow Treatment

A temporary reduction or elimination of activity, physical therapy and exercise to strengthen specific muscles and anti-inflammatory medicines may be prescribed by your doctor to relieve stress and pain in the elbow.

If nonsurgical options are not successful, your doctor may recommend one of several surgical options to repair the tendon. Surgery is usually performed during the first two to three weeks after the injury before the tendon and bicep begin to scar.
