Can pump bump be treated surgically?

Yes, pump bump can be treated invasively. However, Haglund’s deformity surgery, like any other surgical procedure, is used only as a last resort. The first line of defense is to use conservative methods to address the bump on the back of the heel. If icing, padding, orthotics, exercises, and other measures have no impact and your pain begins to limit your mobility--it’s time to talk about other interventions.
