What was your initial medical issue?
Ruptured Achilles tendon.
What did your pain or other symptoms prevent you from doing?
I couldn’t walk or put weight on it upon injury.
Why did you choose Dr. Sanders and Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Center?
I was recommended by the Emergency Department.
What procedure/treatment did you have done?
Achilles tendon repair.
How did you feel after your treatment?
For the first few weeks, I was very weak and tender in the area of the surgery. However, following Dr. Sanders advice I was able to start physical therapy on time and have been progressing ahead of what I understand to be typical. It’s been a little over four months since my surgery and while I’m not back to my pre-injury fitness level yet, I’m currently able to jog 2+ miles at time and ride a road bike for 45+ minutes with little difficulty.
Do you have any advice for other patients?
If you find yourself in a similar situation as I did, Dr. Sanders is who you want to see. His experience, expertise and demeanor are second to none. Highly recommended!
