Brachymetatarsia is a genetic condition that causes one or more bones in—usually—the fourth toe to stop growing while the other toes keep growing. In children with this condition, growth of the affected toe usually tops when they are around 7 or 8 years old. Brachymetatarsia can happen on one foot or both feet, but it is unusual for it to affect more than one toe on the same foot. Even though this is not common, Dr. K has operated on feet that have had up to three toes affected by this condition, so, yes, he can perform the same surgery on more than one toe on each foot.
