Tendon Repair

General Condition

What is Tendon Repair?

Tendon repair is a surgical procedure used to repair torn tendons. A torn tendon can occur when the fibers that make up the tendon are damaged or torn. Tendons are located throughout your body and connect muscles to bone. They help you move your body, and they also provide stability to joints.

Tendon repair surgery is done by an orthopedic surgeon, who repairs the tendon by stitching it together with sutures (stitches). The stitches are placed in rows along the injured area so that they can be removed later. The sutures keep the tendon from moving or sliding during motion of the joint, which would cause pain and further damage to the repaired tendon.

The procedure may be performed at an outpatient surgery center or hospital depending on whether you have insurance coverage for outpatient surgery; if you do have insurance coverage for outpatient surgery, and then this type of procedure would be performed at an outpatient surgery center rather than a hospital setting.

What are the types of Tendon Repair Surgery?

The type of surgery needed will depend on the location and severity of your injury. In most cases, you’ll need to have an arthroscopy—a procedure in which a small camera is inserted into your joint through a tiny incision made in the skin. During this procedure, the surgeon will be able to see where the tear is located and determine if it needs sutures or if surgery is necessary.

There are several different types of tendon repair surgeries, including:

  • Open tendon surgery uses an incision in the skin to access the damaged tendon and fix it. The incision is closed with sutures or stiches.
  • Laparoscopic (also known as keyhole) surgery uses small incisions in the abdomen to access the damaged tendon and fix it. The incisions are closed with sutures or stiches.
  • Arthroscopic surgery uses small incisions in the knee to access the damaged tendon and fix it. The incisions are closed with sutures or stiches after removing any torn tissue from inside your knee joint through these small holes in your skin and bone (arthroscopy).
  • Surgical repair of ruptured tendons, which involves taking a piece of tendon from another area and transferring it to where it was torn. This is often done for Achilles tendon injuries.
  • Tendon transfers, which move a tendon from one part of the body to another so that it can help with strength and stability in the injured area. For example, this can be used to restore function to a hand after an injury.
  • Tendon lengthening surgeries, which focus on increasing the length of a tendon by performing an operation on it while it is attached to bone with sutures or screws, allowing it to grow as bone grows around it until all pieces have been lengthened enough for optimal function.

How to perform Tendon Repair Surgery?

The tendon repair procedure is a surgery to repair torn tendons. During this surgery, the torn ends of the tendon are attached together with stitches. This helps to prevent further injuries and improves functionality of the affected area.

Tendon repair surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1 hour to complete. The surgeon will make an incision over the affected area and remove any loose tissue from it. Once that is done, he will examine the tendon ends to see if there are any other problems like infection, etc., which need to be addressed before stitching them together.

After removing all damaged tissue, he will stitch together both ends of your tendon with special sutures which dissolve over time so they don’t have to be removed later on after healing has occurred properly without causing any further complications along with providing maximum strength so you can move freely without feeling pain in that area anymore!

What are the causes of Tendon Repair?

Tendon repair is a surgical technique used to fix the tendon, which is a fibrous structure that connects a muscle to a bone. Tendon repair is used to treat tendons that have been damaged by an injury or strain, such as in a sports injury, or overuse.

The most common causes of tendon repair include:

  • Sports injuries
  • Overuse injuries (such as from repetitive motion)
  • Infection

What are the complications of Tendon Repair?

There are two main types of complications: infection and pain.

  • Infection can occur when the patient uses an antibiotic after the surgery. If this happens, then an incision may be required to drain the infection before it spreads to other parts of the body.
  • Pain can also occur as a result of tendon repair surgery. If a patient experiences pain after the surgery, then he or she should contact his or her doctor about how to treat this problem.

Recommended Exercise

General Condition

What are the exercises for Tendon Repair?

The exercises for tendon repair are as follows:

Stretching

Stretching is one of the most important things you can do to help your body heal after surgery, so be sure to stretch regularly. Stretching should be done 3 times a day for 15 minutes at a time.

Range of Motion

Range of motion is also important when it comes to healing from tendon repair surgery or any other type of surgery. You should perform range-of-motion exercises several times per day for about 15 minutes at a time in order to increase your flexibility and prevent stiffness or scar tissue from developing in your joints and muscles, which can make it difficult for you to move around normally later on down the line.

Cardiovascular Exercise

Cardiovascular exercise is an important part of recovery after any kind of surgery because it helps speed up your recovery by increasing blood flow throughout your body, which helps remove waste products like lactic acid from the muscles that were damaged during surgery while also reducing swelling caused by post-operative edema (swelling).

General Condition

What brace is used after Tendon Repair Surgery?

After tendon repair surgery, the doctor will likely recommend a lower leg cast or brace to help you recover.

A cast or brace provides support and stability to the joint while it heals. It also helps keep your leg straight during the healing process.

You should wear your cast or brace for about six weeks, until you are fully healed.
