Orthopaedic Surgeons

Your Injury

Our Surgeons primarily perform knee and shoulder surgeries. Our surgeons also offer a limited number of other sport related procedures for the foot, ankle and elbow. If the surgeons do not perform the type of surgery you require, they will let your referring doctor know and may recommend a different surgeon. Please refer to our referral criteria for more information.

Your Injury

Achilles Tendon Rupture/Repair

The Achilles tendon forms a thick band joining your calf muscles to your heel. This tendon can be ruptured with rapid movements such as sprinting, lunging and jumping. There are two ways to treat patients who have ruptured their Achilles tendon, non-operative management in a splint or cast, and surgery. Multiple research studies have shown that both approaches have similar outcomes at one year when rehabilitation is started early. After this injury, dedicated rehabilitation of your core muscles, leg strength, balance and agility are essential for you to return to doing all of your regular activities.
