Podiatrist: Primary cause of haglund's deformity is pressure on the back of the heel from shoes. Calcaneus(heel bone)is shaped differently in different people. People who have a prominent bump underneath the attachment of the achilles tendon are more likely to develop haglund's deformity, see podiatrist for recommendations for therapy and type of shoe wearing. ...Read more
If back of the heel::
Can be caused by haglund's if the heel bone itself is hypertrophied in the area,
or this could be a calcification/ spur on the back of the calcaneus related to the achilles tendinitis,
it may even be a calcification inside the tendon, separate from the bone...

I have haglund"s disorder i had xrays taking my poditrist is sending me to a orthopedic doctor what type of surgey can they do if any?
Orthopedists and podiatrists preform haglunds type procedures. It depends on how involved the bony prominence is along the posterior heel. Usually the Achilles tendon is detached, the bony prominence is resected and the tendon is reattached. This has been found to be successful and full recovery is about 3 months with rehab ( at least). ...Read more
What r the pros and cons to haglund's heal and what should i talk to my doctor about when deciding to have surgery on it also is it a easy surgery?
Rehab Difficult: A haglunds deformity is a bony protrusion along the back of the heel, usually in the outside ( dorsolateral). It can occasionally get inflamed and become painful to the adventitial bursa that develops over it. The tendon insertion also gets inflamed. I only perform hanglunds resection when it becomes debilitating. Its the rehab that is difficult after this procedure , due to detachment of AT. ...Read more
I suspect I have Haglund's Syndrome. There is a bump on the back of both my heels. It's almost as if they curve outward. I've had them ever since I can remember. They become painful when I wear shoes for a long period of time. Can they be removed?
Yes: They can be surgically removed and this is what I would recommend to you. Given your relatively young age you would appreciate many years relief. Now having said this, there are complications still to consider. This should be discussed with your doctor. Conservative care would work but you would be involved with this the rest of your life and you would be limited on your choice of shoes. ...Read more
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 ?
The type of surgery that is involved all depends upon the extent of the posterior calcaneal bony protrusion.:
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 ...Read more
