A member asked:

I am experiencing heel pain. i have haglunds disorder my podistrist is sending me to a orthopeedic dr he wants them to remove the lump or shave it and snim and reline the tendon what type of surgery is involved and what is the down time ?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

The type of surgery that is involved all depends upon the extent of the posterior calcaneal bony protrusion.: Hello, Depending on the size and location of the prominence, a surgeon maybe able to get a way with removing as much of the prominence as he can without detaching the tendon. The recovery time on this would be fairly less involved 4-6 weeks with rehab. If fairly large, one would need to detach and reattach the tendon to remove the protrusion which will increase recovery, taking 3-4 months with PT
