Achilles Tendinopathy Surgery

Achilles Tendinopathy Surgery

Achilles tendinopathy is a condition that causes pain, swelling and stiffness of the Achilles tendon that joins your heel bone to your calf muscles. It is thought to be caused by repeated tiny injuries to the Achilles tendon. These may occur for a number of reasons, including overuse of the tendon – for example, in runners.

There is one recognised surgical procedure for addressing this issue.

Achilles Tendon Release (Endoscopic)

Achilles tendon release is a surgical procedure that aims to stretch the Achilles tendon to allow a person to walk flat-footed without a bend in the knee, or to bring relief to chronic pain. This procedure elongates a contracted Achilles tendon by making small cuts on the tendons at the back of the ankle. This can be done using keyhole surgery, which allows the patient to be treated as a day case and improves the recovery time.
