If it is BPPV which was also supported by Hallpike test then Epley maneuver is the best way of treating it. You will not need to undergo surgery for it.

There could be even other causes of vertigo, but that you are doing the vestibular rehabilitation exercises, continue doing them for some more time and you will find relief once your body and brain adapts to the new situation.
