Haglund's deformity, commonly referred to as "pump bump," is a painful condition characterized by a bony enlargement on the back of the heel. This condition often results from wearing shoes with rigid backs that irritate the heel. At Acacia Foot and Ankle Surgeons, led by the experienced Dr. Kaveh Panahi, we offer a variety of effective treatments to alleviate pain and correct the structural issues related to Haglund's deformity.
