Extensor tendons in foot sublux/snapping over bones. Torn ext. retinaculum no surgeon will replace. Any brace (non AFO) to hold tendons in place?

In brief: Retinaculum

Unfortunately the extensor retinaculum is the housing complex for the tendons.
Keep looking for a surgeon to repair. A brace will help short term, but not long term.
