Arthrex PARS Technique Helps a Professional Soccer Player Get Back on the Field

When Ike Opara ruptured his Achilles tendon, he thought his professional soccer career was over. With the help of his surgeon, Kirk A. McCullough, MD, and our minimally invasive Percutaneous Achilles Repair System (PARS) technique, he returned to the sport he loves about 5 months after his surgery. Ike went on to become 2017 Defensive Player of the Year and was selected to the U.S. Men’s National Team training camp.
