Accessory Navicular options

My 13 year old son is a year-round athlete.(basketball, baseball, and soccer) 6 moths ago he was diagnosed and fitted with an orthotic. It was apparently not of the highest quality and that and time has left him with an ill fitting othotic. His podiatrist offered two possibilities: better fitting orthotic or surgery. It's quite painful for him. I'm concerned that the orthotics are only treating symptoms and he will grow into young man with very painful feet if we don't chose surgery. your thoughts?
