clawing following calcaneus fracture

What is the generally accepted surgical procedure to relieve clawing following a shattered calcaneus, multiple tarsal fx and multiple meta-tarsal fx's. Is it necessary to cut the tendon after re-sectioning the joint?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
