Are bunions limiting your activities and lifestyle?

A common misconception is that a bunion is simply a “bump” that can be “shaved off.” But, bunions are more than a bump – they are complex 3D problems caused by an unstable joint in the middle of the foot. Conservative treatment options can help alleviate pain, but will not fix the problem because bunions are a progressive disorder that will not go away on their own without surgical correction. Lapiplasty® provides a 3D correction and secures the unstable joint.

How does Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction Work?

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.
