Tendon repair surgery is done to treat a torn or otherwise damaged tendon. Tendons are the soft, band-like tissues that connect muscles to bone. When the muscles contract, the tendons pull the bones and cause the joints to move.
When tendon damage occurs, movement may be seriously limited. The damaged area may feel weak or painful.
Tendon repair surgery may be helpful for people who have tendon injuries that are making it difficult for them to move a joint or are very painful.
Generally, during tendon repair a surgeon will:
If there isn’t enough healthy tendon to reconnect, the surgeon may perform a tendon graft using a piece of tendon from another part of the body. It may be from the foot or toe, for example. On occasion, a tendon transfer (moving a tendon from one area to another) may be useful in restoring function.
Anesthesia (pain medication) is used during tendon repair to prevent the patient from feeling pain during the surgery.
