Kidner Procedure

My daughter has been having pain in her right foot because the tendon that runs over the accessory navicular bone has been inflamed for about 7 months now. We done the boot cast and the hard cast and our orthopedic doc now wants to do the Kidner Procedure. We are of course unsure about surgery for a 12-year-old, but she is still relying on one crutch to get around because of the pain. Is there any option besides surgery that we haven't yet tried? Is surgery the right thing for her and will she recover without restrictions, as the doc has promised?
