Tendonopathy & Tendon Tears

Our specialist Perth podiatric surgeons Dr Andrew Knox & Dr Burke Hugo treat a range of tendonopathies and tendon injuries affecting the foot and ankle including;


Achilles tendon tear or tendinopathy

Peroneal tendon tear or tendinopathy

Tibialis posterior tendon tear or tendinopathy


If you have been suffering from pain relating to a tendon injury or tendinopathy our team can help provide confirmation of diagnosis and implement an appropriate treatment plan to rectify the problem.


In many instances, non-operative treatments such as custom-made orthotics, guided-injections, and immobilisation may be helpful whilst others presentations will require surgical intervention. Surgical interventions we perform include tendon debridement and repair, tendon-transfer and tenodesis. Our team has extensive experience in specialist treatment of these conditions and can assist you further following an assessment of your condition and imaging.
