Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™

Discover our innovative approach to bunion correction using Lapiplasty®. This cutting-edge technique provides a stable, long-lasting solution for bunions, ensuring a more comfortable future.

Lapiplasty® is a surgical technique designed for the 3D correction of bunions, specifically addressing the root cause of the deformity. Unlike traditional bunion surgery, which often involves 2D correction by addressing only the symptomatic bump on the side of the foot, Lapiplasty® aims to correct the misalignment in three dimensions.

Key features of Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ include:

  • Tri-Plane Correction: Lapiplasty® corrects the misalignment in three planes – transverse, frontal, and sagittal. This comprehensive approach aims to address the entire bunion deformity rather than focusing solely on the cosmetic appearance.
  • Joint Preservation: Lapiplasty® seeks to preserve the natural joint at the base of the big toe (first metatarsophalangeal joint) rather than removing it. Preserving the joint is intended to allow for more normal motion and potentially reduce the risk of recurrence.
  • Titanium Plating: The procedure involves using specialized titanium plates to secure the corrected bones in place, providing stability during the healing process.
  • Faster Recovery: Patients may experience a faster return to weight-bearing activities compared to traditional bunion surgeries.
  • Reduced Recurrence Risk: By addressing the root cause of the bunion deformity in three dimensions, Lapiplasty® aims to reduce the risk of bunion recurrence.

As with any surgical procedure, the appropriateness of Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ depends on the individual patient’s condition, and the decision should be made in consultation with an orthopedic surgeon or podiatrist. It’s essential for patients to discuss their specific case, including the benefits, risks, and expected outcomes, with their healthcare provider.
