Erik Karlsson, a member of the Ottowa Senators defense, is back on the ice after suffering a devastating injury for an athlete, and in a gruesome way.

On February 13, Karlsson was playing in a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins when the accident occurred. Matt Cooke, a forward for the Penguins, and Karlsson collided on the ice and Karlsson sustained a shocking injury. Cooke’s skate sliced the back of Karlsson’s leg, cutting his Achilles tendon.

Karlsson had to undergo Achilles tendon surgery to repair the damage to the tendon and it looked like a season-ending injury. However, Karlsson has made a remarkably quick recovery and is now ready for play again.

There are various surgical techniques used in repairing a torn Achilles tendon. If you suffer a similar injury, your surgeon will choose the best procedure for your specific case. Physical therapy is an important part of the healing process after surgery.

However, surgery is not always required for an Achilles tendon rupture. Your doctor will you help you decide what treatment option is best for you.

If you have suffered an Achilles tendon injury and would like to set up an appointment with our office, you can contact us at 615-220-8788 or at our toll-free number 888-713-0906. You can also request an appointment online.
