Retrocalcaneal exostosis (also known as an Achilles bone/heel spur) is the overgrowth of bone on the back of the heel. This painful condition is often related to the chronic tugging of a tight Achilles tendon on the heel bone (calcaneus).
The bone spurs can destroy the attachment of the Achilles tendon so it is important to seek proper medical attention at the onset of the condition.
The team of physicians at University Foot and Ankle Institute has extensive experience treating Achilles conditions and spur removal related to retrocalcaneal exostosis.
