    Abstract

    Achilles tendon surgery is a common procedure in general orthopaedic and sports clinics. Most patients are placed prone for Achilles tendon surgery. We describe an alternative position, which gives good surgical exposure and is relatively simple. It also decreases some of the problems and risks associated with full prone positioning of the patient.
