Dr. Romeo on Favre's Recovery
from Biceps Surgery

Approaching his 40th birthday, Brett Favre seems to be playing better than ever. Even more surprising to many football and medical experts, however, is the return of Favre's arm strength after undergoing biceps surgery in May.

Dr. Anthony Romeo, Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush sports medicine and shoulder surgeon, credits Favre's quick recovery to a unique surgical approach that is helping many athletes extend their careers. Instead of repairing Favre's partially torn tendon, Dr. James Andrews performed surgery to cut the tendon to alleviate the pain from the injury.

"The biceps tendon is relatively unimportant to throwing a football," said Dr. Romeo. "The key to his result is that he got rid of his pain." Dr. Romeo thinks that not only will Favre's arm hold up, but he could get stronger as the season progresses. His comments on the injury were featured in an NBC Sports report.
