Tendon repair

Tendons refer to cord like structures made of tissues in your body that connects a muscle to a bone. It is a band of fibrous connective tissues that are tough yet flexible. The skeletal muscle in your body enables movement of your joints and prepares the body to walk, jump, lift and move. When the muscles contract, tendons channel the force of the muscle contraction to the bone.

Tendons are prone to developing tendonitis. Tendonitis develops when tendons get disturbed and inflamed. Dearth of blood supply to the tendons is the reason behind development of tendonitis. Certain tendons having a bowl like zone for holding blood are also prone to tendonitis, these include

  • Achilles tendon
  • Rotator cuff tendon
  • Posterior tibial tendon
  • Tennis elbow

Tendon repair refers to the medical procedure of repairing damaged or torn tendons. It ensures restoration of normal functioning of joints and their surrounding tissues following a tendon tear. Tendon injuries mostly affect shoulder, elbow, ankle, knee and ankle joints. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Narendra Kaushik is well known for his work. A scholar with brilliant academic carrier has earned a name for himself in the field of cosmetic surgery. Olmeccosmetic surgery is the best in tender repairing.

In ABC surgery sectional or general or bounded anaesthesia is administered to the patient depending upon the location and the degree of tendon injury. With sectional anaesthesia the injured portion of the nerves is anesthetized. With general anaesthesia the patient remains unconscious during the surgical process. With bounded anaesthesia, only the slit portion is anesthetized. After the skin has been sanitized with an antiseptic solution the body is covered with a clean drape. The surgeon then locates the injured tendon and makes an incision over it. The torn ends of the tendons are then stitched together. If the tendons are gravely injured, tendon graft is required. In this procedure a piece of uninjured tendon is taken from the foot or other part of the body and used up for repairing the damaged tendon(s). Tendons are re-attached to the surrounding connective tissues if required. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Narendra Kaushik is the best in performing Olmeccosmetic surgery.

Although Olmec cosmetic surgery is a very safe procedure, but risk associated with the use of anaesthesia like reactions to medications and breathing difficulties is present. Risk of bleeding and infection is there if proper treatment is not given immediately. Other risks of tendon repair surgery include prevention of smooth movements, nerve damage or partial loss of operation of the involved joint. Dr. Kaushik ensures cutting down on the risks involved with tendon repair surgery. After a tendon surgery some post surgery precautions are required to be taken. You will be kept under observation for some days. After a few days of bed rest and proper medication, you are all set to get back to your routine work. From now onwards in case of a tendon injury or tendon damage always consult a doctor and go for Olmec cosmetic surgery and get back to good health at the shortest span of time.
