Specializing in the Treatment & Management of Haglund’s Deformity in NJ
Haglund’s Deformity is a bony enlargement that occurs on the back of the heel bone and is referred to as “pump bump” due to it commonly affecting those who wear high heals or pump-style shoes. If you have high arches, a tight Achilles tendon, or a tendency to walk on the outside of your feet, you’re more likely to develop Haglund’s Deformity than other people.
When home remedies like applying ice and applying pads on the back of your shoes don’t work, or the bump continues to enlarge, contact Dr. Tatiana DeLaurentiis at Westfield Family Podiatry & Surgery so a treatment plan can be developed for your feet.
Haglund’s Deformity Diagnosis & Treatment
Before providing treatment Dr. DeLaurentiis will examine your feet and review your medical history. Depending on the structure of your feet, x-rays, MRI’s or ultrasounds may be ordered.
Treatment options may include:
- Shoe modification

- Oral anti-inflammatory medication
- Immobilization from soft casts or walking boots
- Surgery, if none of the non-surgical methods provide adequate relief
