Proximal Hamstring Repair

The hamstring is a muscle in the back of the leg that is commonly injured among athletes. This injury can be acute (sudden) or chronic (long term) and results in pain and decreased strength of the affected leg. If conservative treatment fails or if chronic hamstring injuries occur, the patient may benefit from an open proximal hamstring repair.

Open Proximal Hamstring Repairs

Open proximal hamstring repairs are not performed as frequently as other orthopedic procedures; however, the results are quite good. Patients are able to resume activities and sports at all competitive levels.
