Re: haglunds deformity and chronic achilles tendonites

Without seeing an x-ray I can not say if the bump on the back of your heel is a Haglund's deformity or a posterior heel spur-The full name of that is Achilles Insertional Calcific Tendinosis (AICT).

The decision to have a surgery should rest with the patient. I never tell the patient they must have an elective surgery. I also do not do surgery for just cosmetic reasons.

So if you are not hurting then you might think about waiting.
