5th metatarsal not heeling

I have been seeing a podiatrist for my 5th metatarsal Avulsion Fracture. I have been in the "boot" in conjunction with the "bone stimulator" for approx. 3 months. There has been absolutely no progress to date and my Dr. has suggested surgery and also suggested that I get a second opinion. Do you have any suggestions? Should I be seeing an orthopedic doctor instead? Any light that you can shed on this subject would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
