The Achilles tendon is the largest in the body, however one of the most prone to injury. When not treated immediately, the tendon ends retract and shorten, making the repair more complicated. This patient is recovering well after Achilles tendon repair with V to Y lengthening and a flexor hallucis longus tendon transfer. If you think you might have injured your Achilles tendon, please give us a call for an appointment today! (425) 339-8888, ext 0.
