Learn about Achilles Tendon Rupture Repair in Omaha, Ne

The Achilles tendon is one of the largest tendons in the body. It connects your calf muscles to your heel bone and is used when you walk, run, and jump.

The achilles tendon is vulnerable to injury. A rupture of the tendon is a tearing and separation of the tendon fibers so that the tendon can no longer perform its normal function.

Treatment options for achilles tendon ruptures include surgical and non-surgical management.

This video animation provides information about the surgical treatment of a torn Achilles tendon.

If you have experienced a sudden “pop” in the back of your calf or heel, you may have ruptured (torn) your Achilles tendon. See your doctor immediately if you think you may have torn your achilles tendon.
