Achilles tendon repair

A ruptured Achilles tendon can be repaired either non-surgically, via a cast or brace, or via surgery where the tendon is stitched together. A cast or brace is put on the leg after surgery for up to eight weeks to help it to heal.


This is a term used by doctors to describe inflammation within a joint. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of joint disease. The surfaces within your joints become damaged so the joint doesn’t move as smoothly as it should. It causes joint pain and stiffness. Treatment ranges from conservative means, injections, fusion, excision or replacement. During hip or knee replacement surgery, the surgeon replaces the damaged joint surfaces with artificial parts. It can reduce pain and improve your mobility.

Hallux valgus (often referred to as a bunion)

This is the deviation of the big toe (the hallux) away from the mid-line towards the lesser toes. The metatarsal head drifts towards the midline and this together with its overlying bursa and inflamed soft tissue is known as the bunion, which causes pain and rubbing on shoes. Treatment under general anaesthesia, one or more cuts are made to insert bone-cutting instruments. These are used to remove the bunion and to divide one or more of the bones of the front of the foot. The divided bones may need to be stabilised with wires, screws or plates.
