Does anyone have  experience with heel cord surgery for their son? We are thinking about this for Arun, he is 11 years old.

What are the  pros and cons to it?

Here is an article from the MDA's Quest magazine: http://quest.mda.org/article/understanding-heel-cord-surgery

 

You might want to ask about serial casting. My son did that a few years ago with great results. They cast them while giving a slight stretch and then change the casts weekly giving more of a stretch each time. My son was able to walk in the casts around the house.
