Yes polio affected leg can be surgically manipulated and if not affected much it can be made capable of bearing your weight and even walking
But all this depends on the affection of the leg means how much is it affected. It can't be decided just like that, you see an orthopedician and after examining you and reports he will be able to tell you what surgery you need and how much can it be corrected.
See an orthopedician at your place
