Calcaneus Fractures

    Calcaneus Fractures

    The calcaneus (or heel bone) is commonly fractured with falls from a height, such as off a ladder or roof.   This is a painful and disabling injury that in most cases is best treated with surgical reconstruction with a plate and screws. Historically, this injury has resulted in chronic pain and dysfunction after both surgical and non-surgical treatment. Newer, more minimally invasive techniques have shown some promise in improving these outcomes.
