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