Achilles Tendon Surgery

NON INSERTIONAL TENDINOPATHY CHRONIC RUPTURES

For both non-insertional Achilles tendinopoathy (above the heel bone) and chronic Achilles tendon rupture, there is a portion of the tendon that is either diseased or missing.

The ‘Graft Jacket’ enables the surgeon to re-inforce the repair of the tendon, resulting in potentially smaller scars than traditional reinforcement surgery and greater confidence for early rehabilitation.

INSERTIONAL TENDINOPATHY and HAGLUND’S BUMP

This causes pain and swelling at the insertion of the Achilles – where the tendon attaches to the heel bone.

By removing the diseased attachement of the tendon and any abnormal bone, the tendon can be reattached to the bone.  The ‘SpeedBridge’ suture anchor technique, permits a stronger reattachement to the bone than traditional methods, giving both the surgeon and patient confidence to begin an earlier rehabilitation programme.
