calcaneal resection

Can anyone tell me what is involved in a resection of postier calcaneal. And what does my Dr. mean when he warns there is a chance my Achilles tendon could pop off during surgery? Any input would be helpful

Re: calcaneal resection

I don't know about Achilles, but the resection is probably the same as osteoto. You'll see a lot of threads about that. Good luck.
