Achilles Tendon Tear/Rupture Orthopedic Surgery

An Achilles tendon rupture can be a devastating injury, especially in athletes. The motions of running, jumping and pivoting, common in many sports, rely on the Achilles tendon. When a severe tear of the tendon occurs, the best hope for full recovery is Achilles tendon rupture surgery. Jonathan Glashow, MD, Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine is the premier sports injury medical clinic in NYC, offering advanced options in Achilles tendon rupture or tear surgery.

The Achilles tendon connects the calf muscles to the heel of the foot. It is extremely tough and can withstand extreme tension and force as it allows the leg to propel the body forward, upward and perform quick changes in direction. When an Achilles tendon ruptures or tears, it can seem to occur out of the blue. For athletes at any level, this can take them out of the game. While there are conservative treatments for some Achilles tendon injuries, to restore complete function for athletes, surgery is the best option.
