What can I expect from tendonitis surgery?
If conservative measures fail to relieve your tendonitis or a secondary issue such as a bone fragment or spur is causing the problem, you may need surgery. Tendonitis surgery can be performed one of two ways: open or via arthroscopy. Arthroscopic surgery is a less invasive procedure with a smaller incision, which means you’ll be back up on your feet more quickly afterwards.
What can I expect from tendonitis recovery?
Recovery time for tendonitis depends on the location and severity of your injury, since tendonitis is inflammation of the tendon. Your injury may clear up in a few weeks, or it may take multiple months for you to return to your normal strength and function.
