Is there a way to avoid this inaccuracy when converting an string to a double and then to an unsigned int? I have tried using str2num() but get the same result.Thanks!

uint64(str2double('132697151393876469'))
%ans =
% uint64
% 132697151393876464
% note that the ans is the same for inputs 1326971513938764XX, where XX is in the range (57-71)

The reason for this is that MATLAB uses double-precision arithmetic by default, which will typically give approximately 15 decimal digits of precision.
One possibility, if you have the Symbolic Math Toolbox, is to use variable-precision arithmetic.
