In brief: Yes
First off, surgery should only be considered if the flat foot is symptommatic and has failed to respond to non surgical management.
Flat foot surgery requires a comprehensive approach and may involve bony realignment (osteotomies), joint fusions (arthrodesis), tendon lengthening and tendon transfers. Be very cautious about "simple" surgeries such as implants to correct deformities.
