Achilles Tendon Repair Surgery: Before & After Pictures

In this video we discuss Achilles tendon injuries, both minor and major..

Achilles injuries can be painful and can stop normal activity as you knew it. Without proper care and treatment, it can become a debilitating chronic condition. This must be avoided at all costs. 

 

UFAI's physicians have decades of experience and expertise in the surgical care of the Achilles tendon and  spur removal related to retrocalcaneal exostosis. 

 

We've helped develop new technologies including special hardware and advanced graft materials that have dramatically advanced reconstruction of Achilles tears and ruptures.
