The achilles tendon is the largest tendon in your body. Ruptures can happen in anyone including well conditioned elite athletes. Treatment can be non surgical and surgical. The decision is made by you and Dr. H based upon many factors. Dr. H provides you with options so that together you can make the best decision for you.
Dr. H is highly trained and experienced at fixing achilles tendon ruptures through a mini incision using a ‘PARS’ (Arthrex, Naples, Fl) technique which is widely considered the current gold standard, even in the NFL. This allows for, potentially, the strongest repair, a quicker surgery with less pain and swelling and aggressive fast rehabilitation.
