Haglund’s deformity is a condition that involves a painful lump or ‘spur’ that develops at the back of the heel, which can be very painful, especially when wearing footwear. Where the deformity becomes very painful and enlarged and does not respond to conservative treatments, then surgery may be indicated. Dr Buckley performs a procedure that involves removal of the bony spur via a small incision at the back of the foot. With Dr. Buckley’s technique, most of the Achilles tendon attachments can be spared, ensuring the fastest possible recovery. The recovery from the procedure depends on how severe the initial deformity is, but generally involves around 6-8 weeks of gradual return to activities with some time spent in a surgical boot.
