Ankle Arthroscopic Tendon Repair

Find Your Footing Again

Your ankle is made up of a complex network of tissues, tendons, muscles and bones. The tendons are divided into two groups:

  • The Achilles: Connects the muscles between your ankle and calf
  • The peroneal tendons: Connect the muscles of the outer part of your ankle to the lower leg muscles

When there is damage to these tendons –whether from coming loose or being torn—it can sideline you from your regular activities and may make you a candidate for ankle arthroscopy tendon repair. At miVIP Las Vegas, we specialize in this kind of foot surgery and can help you get on your feet again.

How Does It Work?

It is possible that you do not even know what caused the problem. Many times, people simply start noticing symptoms, such as:

  • A weak feeling in your foot when you walk
  • Popping or snapping around your ankle
  • Pain and swelling

After determining you are a good candidate for ankle arthroscopy tendon repair, an miVIP surgeon will use a minimally invasive approach with small incisions to fix the issue. Depending on your injury, this might include removing a damaged piece of tendon and stitching the remaining part back together or re-anchoring your Achilles by using nearby tendons.

Your body will also work to repair the tendon as well because there is already a natural increased blood flow in your tendons. This combined with arthroscopic foot surgery means you should have a relatively quick recovery time.

Our Team at miVIP

Our surgeons are highly skilled leaders in our industry. With vast experience in ankle arthroscopy tendon repair, some of our physicians even teach other doctors how to perform the surgery. You can be sure your feet are in good hands when you trust our team with your procedure.

What to Expect for Your Recovery

Because of the minimally invasive approach, your recovery time should be relatively quick. However, there will still be some work to do in terms of physical therapy. Your surgeon will discuss with you which exercises you can do to further strengthen your ankle so you have a full, successful recovery.

Cost of the Procedure

We accept most forms of PPO and POS insurance at miVIP, and your out of pocket cost will largely depend on your policy. If you would like to learn more about what your expenses may be, please contact one of our friendly representatives.

Other Important Information

When it comes to ankle arthroscopy tendon repair or ankle injuries in general, it is important to understand the risk factors that can lead to your foot surgery. You could be at an increased risk for tendon damage if you:

  • Are 35 or older
  • Have a history of either hyperparathyroidism or gout
  • Take certain medications
  • Exercise infrequently but rigorously, putting strain on your body when it isn’t prepared

Surgery may not always be necessary, but you should always pay attention to any symptoms you are having and discuss them with your physician. Left untreated, your condition can actually become worse.
