Lapiplasty

Bunions can be a big problem. We can help.

Are Bunions Limiting Your Activities and Lifestyle?

Bunions can be very painful. With each step, your entire body weight rests on that bunion. Ouch! A common misconception about a bunion is that it is an overgrowth of bone that can simply be "shaved off". In reality, bunions are complex deformities caused by an unstable joint. 

Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction

Relief is here. Now, there's a new, patented treatment for bunion correction – Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction. Dr. Daige at DOC is offering this exciting, new treatment option which does more than simply remove "the bump"; it addresses your bunion in three dimensions to correct the root of the problem. Advanced fixation technology is used to secure the correction in place, allowing patients to walk within days of surgery.1

Why Was Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction Developed?

For 87% of people with bunions, traditional surgery has failed to get to the true source of the problem – a 3-dimensional deformity caused by an unstable joint.2 This is why many people who have had traditional surgery have had their bunions return.3 In fact, 1 in 3 patients have been left dissatisfied with their surgical outcome in the past and up to 70% of those treated have had their bunion return.4

The Lapiplasty procedure is a unique system designed to correct the root cause of bunions. 

  • It stabilizes the joint that causes the deformity. 
  • It allows for early weight-bearing about a week from surgery
  • It has a much lower rate of the bunion returning

Traditional Approaches To Bunion Correction Have Been Ineffective

Traditional 2D Surgery

Traditional Surgery Is A 2D Solution For A 3D Problem

Traditional bunion surgery has been limited to an incomplete, two-dimensional (2D) approach to correction; cutting the bone in half and pushing the top part over to reduce the appearance of the bump. This 2D "cut and shift" approach primarily addresses the bunion's symptoms, not the root cause – the unstable foundational joint – leaving the bunion significantly more likely to come back to some degree.3

How Does Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ Work?

Instead of cutting the bone in half and shifting the top part over, the patented Lapiplasty® Procedure uses specially-designed instrumentation to rotate the entire deviated bone back into its normal anatomical position, naturally straightening your toe; removing the "bump" and associated pain. Innovative titanium plating technology, permanently secures the unstable foundation, the root of your bunion problem. Most patients are able to walk within days of surgery. No cast is required; allowing patients to get back to the shoe wear of their choice and activities quickly.
