To repair a torn Achilles tendon, surgery may be necessary after the initial swelling is reduced, about a week after the tear occurs. During the repair surgery, the doctor cuts an incision above the heel on the back of the ankle in order to sew the tendon back together. The out-patient procedure is usually done under local anesthesia. Post-surgery, the patient wears a cast or walking boot for a month and a half to three months. The cast or boot is adjusted during the healing process from a downward pointing angle to a neutral position. Specific exercises and physical therapy are completed as part of the healing process to regain motion and strength.
My family loves Dr Stevens we have been his patients for many years. He treats us like family. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Very clean and Friendly office. Great doctors!
Not only is Dr. Stevens an amazing Dr., he is kind and patient. Having an elderly father, he always took the time to make him feel comfortable and welcome. Thank you Dr. Stevens for your professionalism and and for your kind disposition! The world is blessed to have such a great, kind and wonderful Doctor. […]

The entire staff is wonderful, very accommodating when scheduling an appointment and Dr. Stevens is very attentive listening to all concerns. Highly recommended.
No matter what day or time of my appointment, I find the entire staff, pleasant, cordial and helpful — also, there are no long waits for appointments — usually quite prompt from the time of the appointment to the time I am brought to the examining room.
I had wonderful care by Dr. Stevens. He took the time to listen to what I said & validated my concerns. Never kept me waiting and has flexible office hours. I am extremely pleased with my treatment.
