The PODdoctors: Peroneal Tendon Repair Surgery

April 14, 2021

Dr. Damien Dauphinee, a board-certified foot and ankle surgeon, and Dr. Raafae Hussain, fellowship trained foot and ankle surgeon, talk about peroneal tendon repair surgery, by walking through the process from a recent case.


“You see how he’s cutting out that damaged tendon, because we want to get it back to where it’s a solid core. Sometimes if they’re salvageable, we’ll tuberlize them, but in this case, you can tell. That tendon has gone. It’s like string cheese. Like I said this last time, you squish that string cheese and that’s what that tendon looks like. You’re taking all those fibers and you’re smooshing them and laying them out. Very unhealthy to say the least.” - Dr. Raafae Hussain [06:22]


“That’s the other advantage of I think of the Artelon. I can get them into early physical therapy, which I think is important for all of these issues.” - Dr. Damien Dauphinee [28:05]
