Your doctor will first make a cut over your Achilles tendon and then proceed to repair it using stitches. They will reconnect your calf muscle to your heel bone using the strongest possible stitches to ensure it can heal well. They will then close the cut, again using stitches. These will need to be removed two weeks following surgery by a nurse.

You will need to have a below knee cast which is used to protect the heel and crutches so as to not weight bear on the cast.

The procedure takes between 45 and 60 minutes and you’ll be asleep for the duration.
