In brief: Different options

While any surgery must be tailored to the individual patient, most flatfoot surgeries involve a combination ofcalcaneal osteotomies (realigning heel bone), tendon transfers, calf tendon lengthening, ligament reconstructions and joint fusions.

In brief: Flat foot surgery

This all depends on the clinical and radiograpic findings present and what your surgeons surgical plan is.
Good luck.

In brief: Fusion

Flat foot surgery usually involves fusion of major rearfoot joints (subtalar, talo navicular and/or calcaneal cuboid).
This can be combined with tendon work such as achilles tendon lenthening.
