Pinky Toe Deformity/ Tight Tendon

Hi! I lovingly inherited my grandmother's pinky toe that is shorter than the other toes, flat and crosses over the 4th toe. I was once told, by a podiatrist, that the only thing wrong is that I have a shortened tendon or a tight tendon that could be cut to let the toe lay in line with the others. I am beginning to have some foot pain that may be related to overcompensating in my gait. Do you know about this condition and what do you recommend? If I do elect to have surgery, do you know of a good surgeon in the Chicago area?

The Silipos® Soft Sock™ is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot. It is recommended for the diabetic, rheumatoid or insensitive foot.
