The Physicians

Achilles Tendon Repair Surgery

If you've been diagnosed with an Achilles tendon rupture or tear, you want to be treated by specialists who not only have the highest levels of experience with Achilles tendon repair surgery, but also evaluate your specific case and let you know all the options you have available.

North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic’s own Dr. Louis C. AlmekindersDr. Selene G. Parekh, and Dr. Lee H. Diehl are nationally-recognized leaders in Achilles tendon repair surgery. Their experience both in day-to-day practice and as past medical consultants for UNC athletic teams give them unmatched insight into every type of Achilles tendon rupture and tear.

NC Orthopaedic Clinic: A Leader in Achilles Tendon Repair

In general, Achilles tendon repair surgery has a much higher success rate and lower incidences of re-rupture than non-surgical methods of treatment. It is preferred by the nation’s leading athletes as the best course of action, allowing them to return to previous activity and performance levels at a much faster rate, with a lower chance or re-injury and less potential muscle loss.

Either Dr. AlmekindersDr. Parekh, or Dr. Diehl will take the time to evaluate your case on an individual basis and meet with you face-to-face to present all the facts on Achilles tendon repair surgery. They believe that health care of the highest level means establishing a level of trust and mutual respect with every patient, encouraging open dialogue and confidence.
