Bobot, surgery is the only definitive fix, but you can go a loooonnnnggg way with either orthotics or carefully selected shoes for symptom control.
You might wish to visit a podiatrist (as opposed to an orthopedist) and tell him or her that you would like to treat this nonsurgically if possible. Maybe they can construct something to help you do that.
