Achilles Tendon Injuries & Procedures
The Achilles tendons are thick and powerful bands of fibrous tissue. They connect your calf muscles to your heel bones. The tendons help you walk, run and jump. And that means they are under a lot of stress, making injuries to the Achilles tendons common.
This surgical procedure is used to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon, this large tendon that travels down the back of the ankle. This procedure will help the tendon heal properly, restoring function to the foot and ankle.
