What is Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™?
Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ is a surgical technique that corrects the root cause of bunion deformities. Unlike traditional bunion surgery, which only treats the cosmetic aspect of the condition, Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ repairs the underlying bone structure and restores the foot's natural form. This innovative surgery allows our podiatrists to provide you with lasting relief from the pain and discomfort caused by bunions.

How does Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ work?
Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ uses specially-designed instruments to rotate your deviated bone back to its normal position, straighten your toe, remove your bunion, and alleviate pain. Innovative titanium plating technology is then used to permanently secure the unstable bone, which helps prevent bunion formation.
Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™
- Restores bone alignment
- Addresses the root cause; an unstable joint
- Enables a speedy recovery; typically within two weeks
Traditional 2D bunion surgery
- Unnaturally cuts and shifts your bone
- Addresses the cosmetic “bump”; not the root cause
- Requires one day to six weeks of non-weight bearing activity with a post-operative shoe
