Tendon repair and transfer

Tendon repair is done for tendon rupture.


A common example is in cases of acute rupture of the Achilles tendon, common in middle age athletes.


The minimally‐invasive Achillon® system, designed by Dr. Assal himself, has a successful track record and is used in the majority of repairs, worldwide.

Tendon transfers are performed for dynamic foot deformities and in neurological diseases.


This form of surgery is quite delicate and requires substantial surgical experience to achieve optimal balancing of the foot.
