Achilles tendon pathologies are seen in a vast variety of patients. With varying degrees of involvement there are arrays of treatment modalities both conservative and surgical. Commonly, debridement of the affected tendon with repair has been used along with any bone debridement that is necessary. Tendon transfers have also been used to augment the repair, with the Flexor Hallucis Longus tendon being frequently used. This case presentation and technique guide showcases a patient undergoing Achilles tendon reconstruction while using the Flexor Hallucis Longus tendon and muscle belly as part of the final repair. A good functional outcome was noted with a 2 year follow up.
