Achilles Tendon Repair
Are you experiencing pain and swelling in the back of your heel when walking? These symptoms are consistent with insertional Achilles tendonitis or a torn Achilles tendon. Injuries like these are painful and can prevent you from doing the things you love. With the help of an orthopedic surgeon and products like suture anchors, you can return to an active lifestyle.
The Role of Suture Anchors
The Achilles tendon is the band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the calf muscles. If you develop insertional tendonitis or tear your Achilles tendon, your surgeon may recommend surgery. During the procedure, the surgeon will use suture anchors to repair and reattach the tendon to bone. Anika offers many different suture anchors for these types of repairs, including Twist Knotless DEX Screw-In Suture Anchors that are extremely reliable and strong while having the advantage of being MRI-friendly (patients with certain types of metal in their bodies cannot undergo an MRI).
