Ankle Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy involves looking at the inside of the ankle joint with a small telescope and camera (arthroscope). The image is projected onto a television monitor via a fibre optic cable. This allows the surgeon to fully inspect and repair any problems.

Achilles Tendon Tear

The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body. It connects your calf muscles to your heel bone and is used when you walk, run, and jump. Although the Achilles tendon can withstand great stresses from running and jumping, it is vulnerable to injury. A rupture of the tendon is a tearing and separation of the tendon fibres
so that the tendon can no longer perform its normal function.

Distal Biceps Tendon Tear

The biceps tendons attach the biceps muscles to bones in the shoulder and in the elbow. If you tear the biceps tendon at the elbow you will lose strength in your arm and be unable to forcefully turn your arm from palm down to palm up.

Proximal Hamstrings Tendon Tear

A complete rupture of the hamstring tendon means that the tendon is completely pulled off from the bone. This can be treated with physiotherapy or surgically. Depending on the severity of the injury and your lifestyle, Dr Sim may recommend one treatment over the other.
