Sports medicine surgery is warranted when our patients have failed conservative care and are in need of additional treatment.
Did you know that repetitive injuries to the ankles, ligaments, tendons and a history of multiple ankle sprains can take a toll on your tendons and ligaments? Also, chronic inflammation in any of the tendons can weaken the tendon and lead to rupture. If you have experienced chronic tendon pain or tendon tears or ruptures, we’ve got you covered.
A tendon repair can be performed to any of the tendons in the foot and ankle.
About the Procedure
Dr. Hurless is trained to perform minimally invasive Achilles tendon repairs, where only a small incision is used and your native tendon is repaired to get you back to activity more quickly. After surgery you will be in a boot or cast and will remain non- weight bearing, however we have an early introduction to physical therapy in most patients to speed up your recovery.
If you feel that you may be a candidate for a tendon repair, call our office and schedule an evaluation with our rearfoot surgeon, Dr. Hurless.
