Let’s face it, bunions are the worst. They make every step painful, they limit your active lifestyle, and they just plain don’t look great, especially in sandals. And sandals are important here in Southwest Florida. Luckily, the newest development in bunion treatments doesn’t just treat bunions, it also has a lower recovery time, getting you back into those sandals sooner than you might think possible.
Reduced Recovery Time
This new surgery gets you back on your feet within days of your procedure. For the next six weeks you’ll be walking in a surgical boot. Compare that to traditional bunion surgery where you would need to spend the first six week completely off your foot, and you can start to see why this new bunion treatment is so exciting. After 6-8 weeks in the surgical boot, with this new procedure you’ll be back to wearing tennis shoes. With the traditional procedure this is when you’ll start wearing the boot. See the chart below for comparisons.

The reduced recovery time of Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction is a result of the innovative new procedure where the affected bone is rotated back into proper position and then secured with titanium plates. The support and strength of the plates is what allows patients to bear weight on their foot weeks ahead of traditional surgery. If you have been suffering with bunion pain, this new procedure could be the relief you have been waiting for.
