In brief: Tendon transfers

Tendon transfer surgeries are an option to restore dorsiflexion in appropriate patients who are not tolerating brace wear. This can provide a very good outcome.
Discuss options with an orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist.

In brief: Yes

Foot drop can be treated with exercise and strengthening the muscles.
Also, an afo splint can assist in lifting the foot. Surgery can be done, but is much less common to perform for this problem than conservative care.
