Your Achilles tendon is your strongest and largest tendon in your body. It is also known as the heel cord or calcaneal tendon. It is located on the back of your leg and connects your calf muscle to your heel bone. That makes it a very important part of your body, and if something goes wrong with it, it can affect many other important functions of your body.
These are just some of the critical functions your spine performs, and opting for surgery on it can be a big (and scary) decision. Do you need a second opinion?
If a recommendation for spinal surgery leaves you feeling uneasy, or the surgeon who recommended it isn't answering your questions to a level that makes you feel comfortable, considering reaching out for a second opinion.
