Distal Biceps Repair
This video demonstrates a distal biceps repair surgical technique performed at Twin Cities Orthopedics. This technique uses a single incision and inserts the ruptured distal biceps tendon directly into the radial tuberosity.
Elbow UCL Reconstruction “Tommy John Procedure”
This video demonstrates an elbow UCL reconstruction, “Tommy John Procedure,” performed at Twin Cities Orthopedics. The surgical technique uses a contralateral gracilis autograft to restore medial elbow stability after UCL rupture in a baseball pitcher.
Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release
This video demonstrates an endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgical technique performed at Twin Cities Orthopedics. This minimally invasive technique uses a scope with videography to visualize and divide the transverse carpal ligament.
Open Carpal Tunnel Release
This video demonstrates an open carpal tunnel release surgical technique performed at Twin Cities Orthopedics. The technique involves using an incision directly over the carpal tunnel.The transverse carpal ligament is divided under direct visualization.
Thumb CMC Arthroplasty with LRTI
This video demonstrates a thumb carpometacarpal arthroplasty with ligament reconstruction, tendon interposition surgical technique. The complete trapezium is removed and the thumb’s palmar oblique ligament is reconstructed using the FCR tendon. The remaining tendon is then placed in the void left by the trapeziectomy to act as a cushion.
Trigger Finger Release
This video demonstrates an open trigger finger release surgical technique performed at Twin Cities Orthopedics. The A1 pulley is divided under direct visualization and flexor tendon is inspected for any abnormality.
