Minimally invasive Achilles tendon repair

A minimally invasive Achilles tendon repair is a surgery to fix an Achilles tendon rupture using a small incision and tiny tools. It leads to faster healing and less pain than a traditional surgery with larger incisions.

In a minimally invasive surgery, your surgeon makes small incisions and works in those using a small camera to see what they are doing, instead of making a larger incision. The smaller incisions disturb less of the rest of your leg, so you can heal faster and have less pain.

Minimally invasive surgery is not right for everyone, depending on where your tendon ruptured. Talk with your surgeon about the best treatment for you.
