The Achilles tendon is the thickest and strongest tendon in your body. Running down the back of the calf, connecting your calf muscles to your heel bone, it's amazingly strong and can withstand more than a 1,000 pounds of force. But when it’s injured, it can be very painful but also put a swift end to your mobility.
University Foot and Ankle Institute is at the forefront of treatment for all Achilles tendon injuries. We have the most technologically advanced equipment available to diagnose and treat all Achilles injuries, from a mild case of tendinitis to a ruptured Achilles that requires surgery.
UFAI has also helped develop several significant advances in Achilles care. From new hardware to graft material, they have contributed to today's dramatic improvements in the care and reconstruction of the Achilles tendon.
