Achilles Tendon Surgery muscle injury heel doctor

Your doctor has recommended that you undergo surgery to repair your ruptured Achilles tendon.

Your Achilles tendon is the connection between the heel and the most powerful muscle group in the body. It is the strongest, largest and thickest tendon in the body. It begins in the mid-leg and descends to the heel.
