I would still tend to question the diagnosis due both to the age at onset and the seeming complete lack of beneficial effect after many years of standard treatment. I doubt that medical literature is going to tell you anything that has not already been said and tried over the years. I woud advise that if top notch specialized care for children's foot problems is not available in your locale, you find out where it might be obtained and take your child there for another opinion.
