Indications for Surgery
The natural arch of the foot is integral to the proper absorption and transfer of impact. Without it, excessive impact delivered to joints in the foot and along the kinetic chain (i.e. ankles, knees, hips and lower back) causes misalignment. If your feet and body do not respond to other flat feet treatments, like stretching exercises or arch support, surgery may be necessary to prevent flat feet from contributing to further injury.
Types of Surgery for Flat Feet
Depending on the injury that may have caused flat feet or the effect flat feet are having on other lower body joints, surgery for flat feet may entail:
- Fusing foot and/or ankle bones
- Removing bone spurs
- Bone grafting
- Cleaning tendons
- Adding tendons
Because of the cost and the lengthy recovery period, surgery should always be considered a last resort.
