Paul Moseley – Tendon Repair

Paul Moseley, a patient of Dr. Boyd Haynes, following a tendon repair in his right arm. Mr. Moseley has also had knee surgery with Dr. Haynes.

My name is Paul Moseley and I am an active 63-year-old male. November of 2020, I tore my distal bicep tendon in my right arm which is my dominant arm. I was moving a heavy sofa and the sofa shifted on my helper’s end. This caused my end to shift and me to hear a pop in my arm and I actually felt the tendon retract inside my arm.

Shortly thereafter, I began to wonder how in the world are they going to fix this?

I am happy to report that Dr. Boyd Haynes (who had previously performed a successful knee surgery on me) also does a nifty bicep tendon repair job.

During my initial meeting with Dr. Haynes he was optimistic that I only had a partial tear and it may not require surgery. He recommended an MRI so he could determine the extent of the rupture and a plan of action. Before the MRI, I managed to further damage the bicep tendon due solely to my carelessness.

When Dr. Haynes saw me for the MRI analysis he already knew that I had a 100% tear in my bicep tendon and he knew it would require surgery.

He also knew it was important to schedule surgery right away in order to facilitate a successful repair. I left his office and was instructed to go directly to the hospital to get registered for surgery.

I am now approaching 5 Months post-surgery and I am very pleased with the results. I have excellent mobility with my arm and no pain. I have regained much of my strength and I am confident that I will achieve 100 % of my previous strength in the near future.

 

How are they going to fix this?
