Achilles Tendon Injuries: What they are and how they're treated

In this video Howard discusses his Achilles tendon surgery and UFAI experience.


The Achilles tendon is the thickest and strongest tendon in the body
and can withstand 1,000 pounds of force. But when injured, it can put a swift end to your mobility.

 

UFAI's physicians have decades of experience with Achilles care and helped develop the most technologically advanced treatments and technologies in the nation.

 

This work has lead to dramatic improvements in the outcomes of Achilles injuries, especially in the last few years.
