What is Achilles tendon repair?

Category: Surgeries


The Achilles tendon is the tendon that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. A repair may be necessary if the Achilles tendon is no longer functioning properly. This is usually caused by traumatic injuries, congenital or degenerative tissue disorders, or the result of wearing of the body.
