Achilles Tendon Rupture Surgery. The Achilles tendon is one of the largest and strongest tendons in the human body. The tendon plays a vital role in a person’s ability to walk and stand up on his or her toes.
The Achilles tendon attaches the bottom of the calf muscle to the base of the heel, an area commonly injured in sports such as jogging, tennis, or activities that require fast
changes of direction, such as soccer and football. An Achilles tendon repair is usually performed when the Achilles tendon is ruptured, torn or otherwise injured. In the event that nonsurgical treatment such as a cast or walking boot fails to reattach or heal the tendon, surgery is often performed.
The cost of Achilles tendon repair will be determined by the severity of the tear, rupture, or injury, the type of surgical approach used, and which type of anesthetic is used by the patient; local, regional, or general anesthetic.
