Kids bones

My kid is 6 years old. We recently relised that both his legs are not the same length. Upon consultation with his paediatrician we were told that the right leg is indeed 1cm shorter than the left. He has never suffered any trauma to his right leg, except that he underwent an operation to remove an additional toe when he was six months old.
Is this a common condition and can it be cured??
