Lapiplasty® –  3D Bunion Correction

Posted by

At the office of Central Florida Foot and Ankle Center, our skilled and experienced podiatrists maintain a position at the forefront of the advances in care. Our goals are to provide the highest quality treatment and help our patients enjoy optimal foot health “every step of the way.”

The Next Step in Bunion Surgery

Today, thanks to a new and innovative 3D procedure, called a Lapiplasty®, painful and disfiguring bunions can now be permanently corrected and natural foot anatomy restored. Unlike conventional 2D surgeries, which simply cut the protruding bone in half and push the parts over to reduce the appearance of a bump, a Lapiplasty procedure addresses the underlying deformity in all three dimensions to reestablish joint stability and normal structure.

Say goodbye to painful and disfiguring bunions forever

It’s essential to keep in mind that well beyond making it increasingly difficult to find shoes that fit and feel comfortable, bunions can lead to other foot problems. As bunions get larger, they alter your foot anatomy and mechanics. Bunions may impair balance, reduce mobility, and have an impact on other parts of your body, such as the ankles, knees, hips, and back.

Let our office put you back on the road to foot health! With a Lapiplasty procedure, we can reduce an unsightly bunion, while returning the entire bone to normal alignment and stabilizing the joint with low-profile, bio-compatible titanium plates.
