Achilles Bone Spur Removal

Our expert orthopedic team removes bone spurs that damage the Achilles tendon and cause heel pain.

Surgery for Heel Pain Caused by Bone Spurs

When a bone spur develops on your heel, it can irritate the Achilles tendon in your foot and cause pain. If medicine, physical therapy and other treatments do not ease the pain, Achilles bone spur removal surgery may help.

Our orthopedic surgeons use advanced methods to remove bony growths and damaged tissues that can cause heel or Achilles tendon pain. During surgery, we lift the tendon from the heel bone, remove the spur and then reattach the tendon to the remaining bone.  

Our experienced team of specialists will be by your side from diagnosis to treatment to recovery.

Why Choose Us for Achilles Tendon Surgery and Care

Our surgeons work with physical therapists to give you the best heel pain care from diagnosis through recovery.

Your care is managed by the same trusted doctors who treat USC athletes and the LA Kings hockey team.

Our physicians are ranked as “Top Doctors” by Los Angeles magazine and Pasadena Magazine.
