The Achilles tendon connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. In an Achilles tendon rupture, the tendon is completely torn. Most Achilles tendon problems occur in middle-aged athletes and are basically injuries resulting from overuse. In a few cases, other medical conditions contribute to the weakening of the tendon. A high-arched or low-arched foot may increase the stresses on the Achilles tendon. As we get older the tendon becomes less flexible and less able to absorb the repeated stresses of running. Eventually small "degenerative" tears develop in the fibres of the tendon. The body tries to repair these tears. When it fails and more damage occurs, then Achilles tendonitis surgery is suggested as a solution to the problem.
What Are the Results From the Achilles Tendonitis Surgery?
Most people will improve with simple measures or physiotherapy. A small number continue to have major problems which interfere with their lifestyle. In this situation an operation may be considered. If an operation is being considered, the surgeon will interview you and examine you again and may want you to have further treatment before making a decision about an operation. Before undergoing Achilles tendonitis surgery, London based patients, and those who can travel, will be advised to undergo a scan, which will reveal whether there is a problem in the tendon which can be corrected by surgery. Patients will also have the opportunity to ask any questions and raise any concerns that they may have, so that they can proceed with the treatment with peace of mind.
