What happens in tendon repair

If tendon repair is something that you may need due to a damaged tendon then there is no need to worry, for a professional like me this type of procedure is straightforward, I guarantee you are in safe hands when you are with me.

You don’t need to be worried about this surgery, but if you want to know what it includes so you can be prepared then here you go:

Firstly a one or more incisions will be made in the skin over the injured area of the damaged tendon, after this the torn ends of the tendon will be sewn together, joining them back up and repairing the initial torn tendon. Once this is complete the surrounding tissue will be checked to ensure that no other injuries have occurred such as nerves or blood vessels. After being checked over the incision will be closed and stitched back up and will then be covered with sterile bandages/dressings to ensure that there can be no infections. The final step after the procedure is that the joint will be immobilized or in a splint so that the tendon can heal fully.

All procedures for tendon repair are performed under anesthetic, so there will be no pain throughout the surgery as you will not be able to feel anything due to being numbed by the anesthetic.
