Frequently Asked Questions

I have posterior heel pain do I need surgery?

First off it’s important to determine the cause of your pain.  Os trigonum syndrome is diagnosed primarily from clinical history and plain radiography. Typically conservative non-operative management will be the first treatment option. If this option fails to change symptoms or progress then surgical options may be discussed with your specialist.
