Biceps tenodesis is a minimally-invasive shoulder surgery used to repair a rupture or а partial tear of the biceps tendon in the shoulder. It is also used to treat chronic tendonitis and SLAP tears in the labrum.

One of our recent patients, William Braun, had a biceps tenodesis performed by Dr. Tehrany and PA Tim Lopresti.

William visited Manhattan Orthopedic Care due to a troubling pain in his shoulder. Dr. Tehrany performed various tests and examined the MRI scans thoroughly. William’s diagnosis was a rotator cuff tear and SLAP Impingement in his right shoulder.

After careful examination and consideration, Dr. Tehrany recommended proceeding with biceps tenodesis. This arthroscopic shoulder procedure has a high success rate. The recovery period may take from four up to six months, depending on the severity of the tear and the patient’s overall health condition.

After the biceps tenodesis, William went through an extensive period of physical therapy. Dr. Tehrany closely monitored his progress and kept providing further instructions.

During one of Williams’s follow-up appointments, he cheerfully expressed his satisfaction with the entire team at Manhattan Orthopedic Care and the care he received from Dr. Tehrany and Tim. Willing to share his positive experiences, he agreed to have his thrill documented with a video.


Dr. Tehrany, Tim, and everyone else did a great job. I had minimal discomfort post-surgery. Rehabilitation has been great. The service at the office here has been great. I’m on my road to full recovery and I’m happy with everything.

This patient was treated at the Staten Island Office.
