I can not tell you for sure without examining your feet, but one diagnosis might be hammertoes. I personnally shy away from operating on something that does not hurt. As far as fees go, there would be variations from doctor to doctor as well as insurance plans. If surgery were to be performed, one would have to consider the anesthesiologist's fee, surgery center or hospital fee etc.
I still think you would be better off going to a podiatrist and getting an examination. Then you can have your questions answered better. I do not think you will find anyone to quote a fee for something they can not see
