Haglund's Deformity

My 14 year old daughter has been diagnosed as having this condition. She never complained before and it seems to be associated with wearing footwear for sports.
There are a few questions I have. If this is a permanent and chronic condition, why not get the bone growth surgically removed rather than mess with inserts and such for the rest of her life? Next, do you know if this condition is associated with any other syndromes? Are people who are prone to this, prone to any other conditions we could watch out for?
Thank you.
