How is Tendon Repair Surgery Performed?

  • The skin overlying the injured tendon is cleansed using an antiseptic solution.
  • An incision is made over the injured tendon.
  • Once the tendon is located, the damaged ends of the tendon are sutured together.
  • In case of severe damage, a tendon graft is used by taking a part of tendon from any other part of the patient's body.
  • The tendon graft is then used to repair the severely injured tendon.
  • Connective tissues around the tendons may be reattached if required.
  • The incision is closed with stitches and covered with a bandage.
