Achilles Tendon Rupture

Achilles Tendon Rupture

Dr. Cameron Eilts operated on me to repair an Achilles tendon rupture. The only scary part of the whole procedure was the MRI. After the operation, there was a period of having a cast on my leg followed by a month or so of having to wear a cumbersome boot. I had no pain during all of this time. Finally, I started to walk normally without any discomfort. Within about two months of the operation, I was taking short walks of a mile or so. I was happy to build up to two to three-mile walks. During this whole time, I had periodic appointments with Dr. Eilts to review my progress. Dr. Eilts has a very engaging personality and I greatly enjoyed these checkups. In short, I cannot imagine an Achilles tendon rupture with less pain or more positive interaction with the doctor than I experienced. I unhesitatingly recommend Dr. Cameron Eilts.
