Accessory Navicular Syndrome in right foot. Is surgery the cure for it?

I have been diagnosed with Accessory Navicular Syndrome in my right foot . It had been almost three months of restricted activity and 6 weeks in a walking boot to no avail. It continues to worsen. Is my next step surgery? I am 16 years old and am a dancer. I take weekly jazz, tap, ballet, and contemporary classes. I would like to return to that stronger than ever as I am entering my Junior year of high school.

Since you are young and very active and you have had pain even after conservative management , I advise you to go for surgery . The name of the procedure is Kidner and it is a very minor surgery and you will be normal in six weeks .
Get well soon.
