Achilles tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis is a common sports injury that causes your Achilles tendon, the largest tendon in your body, to swell and become painful around the heel area. It is important that you see a specialist as soon as possible before your injury worsens. Our leading specialists are experienced in diagnosing and treating Achilles tendinitis, with the aim of getting you back on your feet again as quickly as possible.

You don’t need medical insurance to receive treatment at one of our hospitals. Treatment from a leading specialist using the very latest technologies is more affordable than you may have thought, and our prices are very competitive.

When you have treatment for Achilles tendinitis at one of our hospitals:

  • your multidisciplinary team will draw on the expertise of a number of specialists, including sports physicians, radiologists, physiotherapists, specialist nurses and orthopaedic surgeons
  • we offer the latest state-of-the-art equipment, including advanced imaging facilities, and the latest treatments to provide the highest quality care and help you to prevent further injuries
  • when surgery is required, our sports injury specialists have access to the latest keyhole surgery techniques

In terms of value for your money, we cannot be beaten. With us, you can be sure you’re getting the best treatment available. When you have any treatment in one of our units or hospitals, you’ll experience a number of benefits:

You’ll have access to the country's finest consultants, working with the latest treatments and cutting-edge technologies in state-of-the-art facilities that smaller private hospitals cannot match.

You don’t need medical insurance to receive treatment at one of our hospitals. Treatment from a leading specialist using the very latest technologies is more affordable than you may have thought, and our prices are very competitive. As a guide, an initial consultation to clarify your condition and discuss the best course of action could be approximately £250

You’ll be treated by London’s number 1 private hospital group. We treat over 400,000 patients each year and this volume drives excellence and experience. Over the last ten years we’ve invested £500 million in treatments, technologies and medication, many of which are not available via smaller hospitals or on the NHS.

You can be confident that we can look after all your treatment needs. We are the only private hospital group to offer patients of all ages such an extensive range of treatments.

You won’t have to wait. Your care starts as soon as you are ready, and often we have same day or next day appointments available.

Your safety is protected. Not all private hospitals are the same. Some private hospitals don’t have any on-site critical care facilities in the event of an emergency. Our consultants have access to more critical care beds 24/7 than any other private healthcare group in the UK. If you need urgent care you’ll receive it instantly – it’s very rare for us to transfer patients to another hospital. Our MRSA infection rates are nearly five times lower than the national average. And we have zero recorded cases of some other common infections.

You’ll receive value for money. You cannot put a price on good health. While you may be able to find cheaper treatment elsewhere, you will not find a private hospital group that offers such a high level of expertise, with so many leading specialists in state-of-the-art hospitals.
