Tendonitis Surgery

Tendonitis is the inflammation of the tendon, which is a band of tough fibrous connective tissue that connects the bone to muscles and has the capability of withstanding tension. These tendons come in different shapes and sizes. There are small ones that enable movement of parts like fingers, and there are large types that help in standing and walking. An example of the latter one is Achilles tendon.
