Biceps tenodesis or biceps tendon transfer?

OP note states:

"I then went ahead and dissected easily down to the groove, identifying the biceps tendon, incising the intertubercular ligament,and then debriding the bone. I then placed an anchor. This is a 5-5 helix anchor. I then ran the locking stitch, both distally and then back proximally. I did this twice in a running locking fashion. This secured the
biceps very well. I then went ahead and delivered into the base of the bicipital groove to complete biceps tendon transfer. I copiously irrigated and made sure there was no bleeding and then closed in layers followed by sterile dressing and a sling."

It sounds to me like a 23430 biceps tenodesis. Appreciate your help.
