Re: flat feet

I would try orthotics in your shoes. Surgery is a very big deal and can have complications. You should go see a Podiatrist or Orthopedic Surgeon to get advice on orthotics and other non-surgery ideas before you consider surgery.

Re: flat feet

Most doctors don't do surgery until many months of conservative treatments have been exhausted. This can include physical therapy, night splints, massages, orthotics, braces, casts, etc.
