Re: Retrocalcaneal Exostosis

After reading several articles, etc. on this, there is relatively new, FDA unapproved, ESWT treatment that has about a 50-60% success rate. Any input on this? Also, is the surgery you're speaking of exostsectomy (sp?) Thanks for any advice.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
