Achilles Repair

Achilles Repair Surgery Treatment

Achilles repair due to tendonitis may require surgery if nonsurgical treatments aren’t effective. Surgical options for Achilles tendon repair due to tendonitis include:

  • Gastrocnemius recession, a surgical lengthening of the calf muscles to reduce stress on the Achilles tendon
  • Debridement and repair to remove the damaged part of the Achilles tendon
