What is Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™?
Patented, advanced technology designed to correct all 3 dimensions of the bunion at the root of the problem (unstable joint). Learn how Lapiplasty® has changed the game.
A common misconception is that a bunion is simply an overgrowth of bone that can be “shaved off”. However, bunions are complex, 3D deformities caused by an unstable joint in the middle of the foot that allows your bone to drift out of alignment.
Advanced surgical technology returns your entire bone to normal 3D alignment and the unstable joint is secured with patented, titanium plates to get you back on your feet quickly (in a walking boot).
How the Lapiplasty® Procedure Works
A lot of powerful technology and advanced surgeon training combine to deliver the patented 3D Bunion Correction™ in an outpatient procedure. Let’s take a look.
Learn why the Lapiplasty® Procedure was developed by a group of leading foot & ankle surgeons to improve upon the inconsistencies associated with traditional 2D osteotomy bunion surgery.
