A Tibialis Anterior Tendon Rupture is a significant injury impacting the foot and ankle, often leading to functional impairment. Our clinic, led by the expertise of Mr. Ashok Marudanayagam, specializes in innovative and regenerative treatments for such conditions, focusing on personalized care and utilizing state-of-the-art techniques for optimal recovery and function preservation.
Understanding Tibialis Anterior Tendon Rupture:
This condition often stems from trauma and is characterized by issues like foot drop. Diagnosis combines clinical examination and imaging, such as MRI scans, to determine the injury's extent.
Advanced Treatment Options:
We offer Tibialis Posterior Tendon Transfer and Allograft Tendon Repair. For younger patients, the allograft procedure is recommended to maintain foot arch integrity, using donated tissue to bridge the rupture gap.
Regenerative Medicine in Recovery:
Integrating regenerative medicine principles, our approach not only addresses the injury but also aids in overall healing and regeneration, ensuring a holistic recovery.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Why is the Allograft Method preferred for younger patients?
It preserves the patient's own Tibialis Posterior Tendon, crucial for maintaining the foot's arch and functionality.
2. What's the recovery timeline for this treatment?
Recovery varies per individual and treatment method, typically spanning several months, with physiotherapy playing a key role.
3. How does regenerative medicine enhance tendon repair?
It promotes natural healing, reduces scar tissue, and improves functional integration of the repaired tendon, leading to better outcomes.
4. Can this injury recur post-surgery?
Post-operative guidelines and physiotherapy are essential to minimize recurrence risks.
