Achilles Tendon Repair Surgery Cost and Procedure Guide

Also known as Achilles tendon rupture surgery, the aim of this procedure is to fuse a torn (‘ruptured’) Achilles tendon back together. This tendon connects the muscles in the calf to the heel bone and is important for moving the foot when walking or jumping. Surgery provides faster healing with less risk of re-rupture when compared to non-surgical methods.
