Biceps Conditions
Biceps is a large muscle in the front of the upper arm. The term biceps is a Latin word meaning "two-headed [muscle] of the arm", in reference to that it consists of two bundles of muscles, each with its own origin, sharing a common insertion point near the elbow joint (Distal Biceps).

Proximal Biceps
This particular origin within the joint, in some patients, is a cause of pain in the shoulder. It is resulted from an acute injury (e.g. sudden pull, impact), repeated trauma (e.g. sport injury) or a chronic and slow process of degeneration (Wear & Tear). The diagnosis in this case is more challenging and it needs a Specialist to confirm the condition. The better news in this problem is that most cases are amenable to surgery. Nowadays, this can be achieved using Arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery. The options are either to repair the damage, fixing/stabilising the Proximal Biceps Tendon (Tenodesis), or excising (removing) the diseased tendon (Tenotomy). The operation can be done usually as a Day-Surgery case. Further detailed information would be provided during the consultation with Mr. Khalid Ayoub. Back...
