My son was born in 2006 with polydactyly...six toes on each foot...2 big toes. When he can out at hospital I asked what was wrong with his foot and why was it like that...they said it was ok and there was only 1 bone in his big toe but he just had 2 finger nails. I tool him to his pediatrician within days after birth aand asked him what was wrong with my sons foot. He said "oh its ok" it probably only one bone in there and its not worth giving him an x-ray. The pediatrician is now retired and another DR has taken over the practice and she automatically gives me a referral to childrens orthopaedic dr to check out his toe and now they yell me he needs to have surgery to remove the second big toe.
