Juvenile bunion surgery

My daughter,14, has 4 bunions 2 regular and 2 tailor bunions. 2 months ago she was fitted for othodics and things seemed to be better -the last 2 weeks have been tough she says they hurt all the time. She takes advil to help with pain but really doesn't notice a difference if she takes it or not. She is a very high level competitive figure skater and planned to compete in college. She is also a varsity cross country runner so athletics are very important to her. She has cut down a lot on her sports due to the pain she is getting with her bunions. She seems pretty young for surgery, but if she does would she be able to go back to her sports? This is a tough decision and I don't know anyone that young having surgery.
