Achilles Tendon Ruptures

Anatomy & Pathology

Two muscles on the posterior side of the leg insert on the achilles tendon which then attaches to the heel bone.  These muscles act to plantarflex at the ankle.  A violent contraction of the muscles can lead to a rupture of the tendon.

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Defect in tendon that is palpable
  • Weakness

Risk Factors

  • Tendinosis
  • High-impact sports that involve jumping, running and cutting

Dr Jimenez and his staff are amazing. Dr. Jimenez replaced both of my hip joints the left in December and the right in June. I had a lot of arthritis and no cartilage and a bone spur. Since my surgeries I can say I am pain free and it actually feels like I was born with my new hips. The anterior approach is a very fast recovery Thanks again Dr Jimenezread more
