Your Achilles tendon is the strongest and largest tendon in your body. Since this tendon is critical for pushing the foot down when walking, patients who suffer from a ruptured or injured Achilles tendon should seek help from an orthopedic surgeon promptly. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we have a staff of top-ranked physicians in sports medicine, including ankle injuries. Our orthopedic surgeons are known for performing minimally invasive treatments to effectively restore the ankle, knee, hip, elbow and shoulder. When it comes to your ankle tendon repair, you can trust that we will carefully consider the severity of your injury as well as your level of activity or sports performance when choosing a corrective surgery technique.

We can help patients who suffer from the following Achilles tendon injury symptoms:

  • Pain and swelling near the heel
  • Inability to bend the foot downward or “push off” the injured leg
  • Inability to stand on your toes
  • A popping or snapping sound at the time of injury

Treatment for Ruptured Achilles Tendon

In the majority of cases, surgery is needed to properly repair a ruptured Achilles tendon. There are a variety of surgical techniques that can successfully repair the tendon and reconnect the calf muscles with the heel bone. Regardless of how you injured your Achilles or what your recovery goals may be, we will implement a treatment plan to help you regain full function of your Achilles and restore necessary push-off strength for walking and running.

If you are suffering from an acute or chronic Achilles tendon injury, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today. We staff distinguished orthopedic sports physicians who can ensure you return to the high-functioning lifestyle you deserve.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
