How long does it take to heal from bicep tenodesis?

Healing from bicep tenodesis is a long process. Before your procedure, you can check the typical cost of bicep tenodesis in your area. After your arthroscopic surgery, you will likely need to stay in the hospital for a day. The anesthesiologist may have placed a numbing nerve block to reduce your pain after the operation. This can be removed after 12-18 hours. You can visit a physical therapist to learn exercises to improve your strength and mobility before leaving the hospital.

Your arm needs to be supported by a sling for 4-6 weeks. You should work with a physical therapist to improve passive and active range of motion. Once the tendon has healed enough, the sling can be removed, and you can work on building strength in your arm. Full recovery of strength may take up to a year, but many patients are mostly recovered from the surgery after 4-6 months.
