Tendon Repair (Augmentation w/Collagen Graft)

This technique is used to treat a damaged tendon. Tendons are tough, fibrous bands of tissue that attach muscles to bones. They can become torn or frayed because of overuse or injury. Graft tissue can protect and reinforce a damaged tendon, helping it heal. In many cases, a tendon repair is performed as one part of a more extensive orthopedic procedure.
