Understanding Tendon Repair and the Procedure


The surgical procedure for tendon repair focuses on fixing torn or damaged tendons, which are the robust fibers connecting muscles to bones.


Repairing the tendon is essential for returning normal function to the affected joint and reducing or eliminating pain.


Tendon repair surgery is beneficial for injuries caused by accidents, overuse, or medical conditions, and it is a critical step towards recovery and regaining full mobility.


Personalized Care Planning


Comfort and Expertise


: Focused on Recovery

Your journey to recovery begins with a comprehensive evaluation by your physician, who will explain the procedure and its benefits. Once you decide to proceed, your physician will coordinate with our team at RASC to schedule your surgery. You'll receive detailed instructions on how to prepare, including fasting and medication management. Also, you'll need to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you overnight after the procedure.

On the day of your tendon repair, you'll be taken care of by your physician, with the full support of our experienced RASC staff. The procedure typically involves making an incision over the injured tendon, then sewing the torn ends together. Depending on the severity of the injury, other techniques may also be used to reinforce the tendon. Local, regional or general anesthesia will ensure you're comfortable and pain-free throughout the surgery.

After surgery, you'll rest in our recovery area as we monitor your initial healing. We'll provide you with aftercare instructions and pain management advice to take home. Recovery often includes wearing a splint or cast and engaging in physical therapy to regain strength and flexibility. Your physician will outline a follow-up care plan to ensure a successful recovery.
