Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™, Explained
August 12, 2019
Fix It Right the First Time
Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ provides a 3D fix for a 3D problem, getting to the root cause. In most cases, patients are able to get back on their feet within days with a surgical boot.
The patented Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ procedure has been designed to lower the risk of bunion recurrence and improve patient satisfaction by correcting all three dimensions of the bunion deformity, permanently addressing the root cause, and enabling an accelerated recovery process.
There actually is no need to cut and shift the metatarsal bone as with a traditional 2D osteotomy surgery. The entire metatarsal bone is simply rotated back into proper 3D alignment and the unstable joint (which is the true root cause of the bunion) is then permanently secured with patented, titanium technology, allowing patients to get back on their feet quickly after surgery.
Many patients, like guest Ann Oxley, are able to walk in a surgical boot after surgery within just a few days. Stay tuned to learn more!
