Pushing the Envelope- Dr. Spencer’s Twist on the Rotator Cuff Repair

As 2021 progresses, Dr. Spencer and the team at Knoxville Orthopedic Clinic have been hard at work seeing patients, fixing bodies and pushing the medical envelope to ensure our patients always receive the utmost care and cutting edge treatment. Over the last 10 years, Dr. Spencer has been developing a new technique to perform an arthroscopic biceps tenodesis in patients already undergoing an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. This technique is unique in the fact that it requires no additional hardware to complete, utilizing the same sutures and anchors to tenodese the biceps as well as repair the rotator cuff tear. If you have had an ALL arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and biceps tenodesis, this is most likely the technique used in your surgery. Check out the video below for a more in depth explanation as well as a description and video of the surgical technique by Dr. Spencer. Thank you for letting us take part in your care, and, as always, God Bless!
