What is an Achilles Tendon Repair?
The Achilles tendon attaches the bottom of the calf muscle to the base of the heel, an area commonly injured in sports such as jogging, tennis, or activities that require fast changes of direction, such as soccer and football. An Achilles tendon repair is usually performed when the Achilles tendon is ruptured, torn or otherwise injured. In the event that nonsurgical treatment such as a cast or walking boot fails to reattach or heal the tendon, surgery is often performed.
How much does it cost?
The average cost for an Achilles Tendon Repair in Tijuana is $4,500 USD. The cost may vary depending on the experience of the orthopedic surgeon and the facilities.

Surgical costs may or may not include anesthetics and consultations and surgeon's fees, so always ask.
