New Zealand Cricket Player Daniel Vettori Undergoes Achilles Tendon Surgery

Daniel Vettori, a member of the New Zealand cricket team, has been struggling with Achilles tendon issues for quite some time now. It has been almost a year since his Achilles tendon began bothering him.

He has been battling through the pain and discomfort and continuing to play. The Achilles tendon problems even plagued him during the Champions Trophy, but despite the pain, he was able to play well in the tournament.

On Wednesday, Vettori underwent Achilles tendon surgery to try and relieve his pain and get back on the right path.

Vettori says he isn’t going to speculate on the future of his career until he sees how his rehabilitation goes.

Hopefully, the surgery will be successful in clearing up his chronic Achilles tendon pain. It takes quite a while to recover from surgery on the Achilles tendon. After surgery, the patient typically will be in a walking boot for at least six to twelve weeks.

We wish Vettori the best and hope this surgery relieves his persistent pain.

If you are suffering from Achilles tendon pain, it is important to see a podiatrist. If you 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.
