Are Painful Bunions Keeping You from An Active Lifestyle?
Bunions can restrict your movement and cause foot pain at every step. They are often thought of as just an overgrowth of the bone, but a bunion is more than that. Bunions are actually a deformity caused by an unstable joint.
Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction Can Help
Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction is a new, exciting treatment with better results that previous treatments and shorter recovery time. Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction rotates the deviated bone into the correct position using specially designed instrumentation. This new, patented procedure naturally straightens your toe, removing the “bump” and the pain. No cast is required, and most patients are able to walk within days of their Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction procedure.
How Does Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction Compare to Traditional Surgery?
Traditional surgery shaved the bump and then cut and shifted the bone, which only addresses the symptoms: the misshapen bone. Unaddressed is the unstable joint, which is the root cause of the problem. These traditional approaches to bunion correction have been ineffective for most patients.
Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction is a treatment approach in three dimensions. A specialized tool rotates the entire bone back into proper alignment, addressing the unstable foundation that is the root cause of bunions. The joint is then permanently secured using two titanium plates for a secure grip.
This advanced titanium fixation technology enables patients to bear weight on the affected foot within days after surgery, walk in a surgical boot for 6 weeks, and then be back in tennis shows at 6-8 weeks! With the traditional surgery patients are in a cast and must spend 6 weeks off the foot, then 6 to 8 additional weeks in a surgical boot.
