Can springs fix an 11mm overbite?

My orthodontist said after I get braces and bands that I can optionally get a 10-12 hour jaw reconstructive surgery to fix my 11mm overbite. Why can't I just get springs to fix my overbite? She said that my bands won't fully fix the overbite, but I thought springs fixed overbites?
