I have a deep bite of 7 mm and crowding in lower anteriors... When I consulted an orthodontist he said that my mandible body is small and ramus length is also small, so my question is should I have to undergo a surgery to align my teeth or can it be done through normal orthodontic treatment?

You have just gave us some very important data on depth of overbite, but we would still need to know the depth of underbite too at canines or some intraoral pictures, or just pictures of your smile, or profile x-ray. In most cases the bite can be fixed with orthodontic treatment only, however, if you are interested in improving the facial profile and bringing more harmony into the face, surgery might help a lot. As far as I understand your facial convexity is greater than normal and chin is located far back. Orthodontic treatment alone is not recommended in moderate and severe overbite cases, since it might not provide a stable result and may relapse.
