About Achilles Tendon Injuries

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 tendon 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 tendon injuries, especially in the last few years.

 

  • Achilles tendinosis is very similar to tendinitis with one critical difference: it has now become a chronic condition, usually because the injury wasn’t properly treated early on.

  • A ruptured Achilles can be a partial or complete tear and often occurs as the result of a sudden force on the tendon.

  • PARS is a minimally invasive, revolutionary treatment for a ruptured Achilles tendon.
