First of all I wish that your son get healthy soon. The main factor to restore leg extension isn’t to force it straight to a point which is not possible to undergo without having painkillers. It will definitely take time and your son has to face some pain. The best way is to do regular exercise staying in limits and not push too much, you should stretch it as much as he can tolerate and hold it for 1-2 minutes. Eventually, it should stretch out with the right technique. I would definitely no recommend any surgical solutions for it.
