Achilles Repair

Achilles tendinitis is one of the most common conditions causing pain running through the back part of your leg, close to the heel. Your Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body, working to join the calf muscles to the heel bone. You use this tendon every time you run, jump or walk. With age and the natural wear and tear caused by time, tendinitis can set in. If you are having difficulty standing or walking because of pain associated with Achilles tendonitis, you can schedule your procedure with I Need A Surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you.

How do I know if I need Achilles repair?

Common symptoms relating to an issue with your Achilles tendon are:

  • Stiffness and pain in your tendon whenever you wake up in the morning
  • Pain in the tendon that tends to get worse whenever you move
  • Bone spurs
  • Tendon thickening
  • Severe pain following a day of exercise
  • Continual swelling that gets worse whenever engaging in activities

If you felt a sudden pop in your heel or calf, you may have torn the tendon. This can happen when participating in athletics such as running, biking, or organized sports like football.

How is the Achilles repair procedure performed?

When it comes time to repair the tendon, the damaged part needs to be removed. Once the damage is removed, the remaining tendon is repaired using stitches.

What is recovery like after an Achilles repair?

The larger the part of the tendon that had to be repaired, the longer it is going to take you to recover. Physical therapy is crucial to the overall recovery process. Many individuals need about 12 months of rehab before they won’t have to deal with pain anymore.

How much does Achilles repair cost?

I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $6,190, versus having to pay $61,900 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
