Dr Greenhagen has been privilege to be part of an upcoming study on insertional Achilles tendonopathy.  The study, which is pending publication, shows that resection of the posterior heel spur may not be needed to a full recovery.  This means patients are able to ambulate immediately after surgery in a walking cast.  Traditional posterior heel pain surgery required about 1 to 2 months of non-weight bearing and the outcomes do not seem to be similar with both options.  If you have insertional Achilles pain or a spur on the back of your heel, call for a consultation.  You may be an excellent candidate for this new surgical option.

My manuscript assessing the clinical outcomes after using the Suture Bridge technique for insertional Achilles tendonopathy was recently published in the Foot and Ankle Specialist.  I was fortunate to collaborate with a bunch great surgeons at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center on teh project which is the first reported outcomes report on the commonly used surgical technique.
