The Flexor Hallucis Longus transfer for Achilles reconstruction is a straight-forward and effective operation for salvaging various situations which have resulted in a deficient and defunctioned Achilles tendon.

The tendon is easily accessed and can be safely harvested  as long as care is taken to identify and avoid the posterior tibial neuro-vascular bundle.

Despite the slightly more involved nature of surgery compared to primary Achilles repair  the period of immobilisation and recovery are no different.
