In brief: Brachymetatarsia

In the feet, the metatarsal are long bones which are located just before the toes.
In many cases when people present for short toes, the real problem is a short metatarsal bone. If problematic, a surgeon could lengthen the shortened bone thereby bringing the toe out to length.
