Should I consider surgical treatment for Achilles Tendonitis?

Asked 2 years ago

Here's the big question that has been on my mind for the past week: Should I consider minimally invasive surgery for effective pain relief if diagnosed with AT? I'm never one for surgery and would instead take the long road rather than risk further complications. However, despite the stretches and compresses, this tendonitis has become incredibly painful, and I'm ready to do anything to make it disappear. Is the surgery worth it? TIA

Surgery is considered a last resort when conservative treatment fails to yield desired results. If the symptoms of Achilles tendonitis fail to improve after several months of intervention, minimally invasive surgery is in order. The success rate for Ankle tendon surgery after tendonitis is as much as 90%. That makes surgery worth it if indicated.
