Bone spur on back of heel behind achilles tendon

Posted by Vernon B on 9/28/00 at 14:40 (029346)

It seems that all the spurs I have read about are on the bottom of the heel {plantar faciitis], what is the term for the spur behind the achilles and what is the surgery involved? Any input will be greatly appreciated. Vernon B

Its called a retro calcanial heel spur. You want to avoid this surgery if at all possible. Dr. B.
