In this video, Dr. Paul Steinke performs a Primary Repair of the Achilles Tendon. We see many patients at Foot and Ankle Associates of North Texas who suffer from Achilles tendon pain. The Achilles tendon is the long tendon that runs down your calf and attaches to your heel bone. It can hurt for many reasons. Maybe you suffered some kind of trauma and have a tear, or rupture, in the tendon. If this is the case, you likely will need surgery. While the recovery can be lengthy, it’s a fairly simple procedure. If surgery becomes necessary, the procedure is simple and quick.
