Baby born with six fingers on hand?

I had a friend who had a baby with an extra finger on his hand. This was a long time ago and I don't remember all of the details but he had other physical issues as well. With the extra finger they did surgery to remove it and I believe there was physical therapy afterward.

It was a tough decision for my friend trying to decide on having the surgery. Her main concern was how it would affect his ability to do things like write and hold a spoon so she made the decision to allow the surgery.
