"3D" Bunion Surgery
Bunions (“Hallux Valgus” in medical term) is easily identified visually as a “bump” on the side of the big toe, but the actual root cause of a bunion is actually located in the middle of your foot - an unstable joint that allows your toe to become misaligned.
During a clinical exam, your doctor will take x-rays of your foot to determine the severity of your condition along with any other problems that be present.
The Lapiplasty® Procedure restores your natural anatomy. There’s no need to cut and shift the normal metatarsal bone as with a traditional osteotomy (2D surgery). The entire metatarsal bone is rotated and shifted over, eliminating the unsightly bump. Also, the unstable foundation is permanently secured with titanium hardware allowing you to get back on your feet quickly.
