How is a Tendon Rupture Diagnosed?

If you have a tendon rupture, your doctor may recommend surgery – only if all other treatment options have been exhausted or are not the best option. The goal of a tendon repair procedure is to repair and restore the function of all of the normal joint and surrounding tissue.

During a tendon repair, the surgeon will make an incision over the injured tendon. Once t he location of the tear is identified, the surgeon will stitch the damaged ends together or attach (anchor) the tendon back to the bone where it used to attach.

If a tendon injury is too severe for a normal repair, then a graft may be required. During a graft, a piece of tendon is taken from another body area and used to repair the damaged tendon. Alternately, tendon from a cadaver may be used.
