    Question Fusion of the accesory navicular bone, calcaneal osteotomy, gastrocnemius recession

    My son is 13 and has mild pain on his foot and wears orthodics. He has flat feet and an accessory navicular bone .

    The orthopedict surgeon has recommended the fusion of the accesory navicular bone, a sliding calcaneal osteotomy and a gastrocnemius recession . We are trying to decide what to do .

    Has anyonee eperienced any of these surgeries and what was your experience , what was the outcome ? Ist it worth doing it ? Thank you for any help you can provide .
