Calcaneum fractures account for approximately 2% of all fracturesand 65% of tarsal injuries, with displaced intra-articular fractures comprising60% to 75% of these injuries. The treatment of calcaneum fractures continues to pose a challenge for the trauma surgeons despite advancement in surgical technique and implant devices. So it is the need of the hour, to identify treatment techniques, which use lesser hardware, and provide better functional outcomes in terms of shorter duration of treatment, better stability and early weight bearing. Thus this study aimed at evaluation of functional outcome of surgicalmanagement of fracture calcaneum who attended the Department of Orthopaedicsof Maharaja Agrasen Hospital during the period of study. Materials and Methods: the study was retrospective as well as prospective, Observational study of 29 patients with intra-articular calcaneum fractures from 18 to 55 years of age, who were operated at Department of Orthopaedics, Maharaja Agrasen Hospital, New Delhi during the period of study, with
