I wouldn't advise surgery unless it is very serious and massively affecting your movement.

I have this exact problem and by my Doctor got referred to my local chiropadist (not sure how you spell it!) They deal with foot treatment there and flat feet is one of their main things. However, if this is problematic for you due to cost (mine costs £100 a visit!) then you there are thing you can do. For example, you can go to your local pharmacy and buy foot insteps that are specially designed to build up and support the arch. Or there are special exercises that if done on a regular basis can help you. One of these is where you put your hands against a wall shoulder width apart, stretch one leg back and bend the other one, hold the position for about a minute and repeat changing legs, try and do this twice a day.I'm sure there are other exercises you can look up on the internet however.

Hope this helps mate :)

There is no medication for this flat foot. My one of the friend had this problem since his birth. The doctor adivsed him to undergo surgery. He has undergone surgery and now he is been able to walk, play games.
