In this article, Dr. Gregory discusses Lawrence’s biceps repair in more detail, and Lawrence highlights his road to recovery, including a personal best time at IRONMAN 70.3 Texas in Galveston. Raising awareness about biceps injuries is important, as they can easily be treated if identified quickly.
Dr. Gregory is a well-respected orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in the management and surgical treatment of shoulder and elbow problems. His general philosophy is to educate patients and partner with them to provide the highest quality care for their shoulder or elbow complaints. He prides himself on the following:
Lawrence Waldron tore his biceps while training. He saw Dr. Gregory in the office, and then underwent surgical repair of his biceps tendon. Six months after surgery, he was able to complete an Ironman Triathlon. His inspirational story was highlighted on KHOU channel 11, and includes Dr. Gregory discussing biceps injuries. Biceps tears can be treated successfully if they are identified within the first few weeks after the injury. If you suspect you may have injured your biceps, seek medical evaluation as soon as possible.
