The peroneal tendons are behind the outer ankle bone and they help stabilize and protect the ankle and foot. If pain continues after nonsurgical treatment, surgery may need to be considered.
For this procedure, the surgeon makes about a three inch long incision along the area and uses retractors to expose the muscle and then a cut is made to reveal the tendons. Dissolvable sutures are placed to bind the torn tendon back together, to stich up the cut muscle, and then to close up the incision on the skin. Bracing and physical therapy are important for recovery from this type of surgery.
Together, our surgeons and physical therapy specialists at Triangle Orthopaedics can offer the best treatment for peroneal tendon injuries. To find out more about our services, please contact our office.
