The answer is - "it depends."  Surgery definitely cannot reverse or cure Duane's Syndrome but in certain instances it can help to improve the functionality of the eyes.  There are several different degees of Duane's Syndrome and you need to see a pediatric ophthalmologist to discuss the possible treatments, if any, for your case.
