Your foot is an intricately designed part of the body. Tendons and ligaments can become easily damaged, causing severe pain. Ligaments connect bones to bones, and tendons connect muscles to bones. Foot tendon surgery is a common occurrence here at District Foot & Ankle. Depending on the problem, there are different types of surgery.
Achilles Tendon Surgery
Although the Achilles tendon is quite tough, this is one of the more common surgeries. When it becomes damaged, it may need surgery to repair it.
Flexor Foot Tendon Surgery
These are the tendons that run along the toe bottoms. It can cause imbalance. Surgery helps release the tension.
Extensor Tendon Surgery
These tendons allow you to lift your toes. They run opposite of the flexor foot tendons on the top of your foot. Hammertoe is a problem involving the extensor tendon and may require surgery.
These are on behind the ankle’s outer bone. This surgery is rare as other methods can usually deal with any problems from this tendon.
Posterior Tibial Tendon
This is an important tendon as it supports your arch. You need it to walk correctly. When conservative methods don’t work, we recommend surgery.
