Atlanta Hawks’ Zaza Pachulia has Achilles Tendon Surgery

Zaza Pachulia, center for the Atlanta Hawks, will miss out on the remainder of the season while he recovers from surgery.

Pachulia underwent surgery last week, Wednesday, April 3rd, to repair the Achilles tendon in his right leg. Apparently, Pachulia has been struggling with the Achilles tendon injury for most of the season and is finally getting the tendon repaired.

The Achilles tendon surgery went well, but Pachulia is expected to be out of play for about six months while he recovers from the surgery.

Surgery to repair an Achilles tendon rupture or tear is usually done on an outpatient basis. The surgery involves making an incision in the back of the leg above the heel to get access to the tendon. The tendon can then be sewn back together.

After Achilles tendon surgery, a cast or walking boot is usually worn for six to twelve weeks.

Achilles tendon injuries are common injuries for athletes.
