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. The podiatrists at Foot and Ankle Centers of Charlotte County are 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.


Why Was Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction Developed?
For 87% of people with bunions, traditional bunion surgery has failed to get to the true source of the problem - a 3-dimensional deformity caused by an unstable joint. This is why many people who have had traditional surgery have had their bunions return. 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.

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!

What Should I Expect In Terms Of Recovery?
The patented titanium plating technology used with the Lapiplasty Procedure enables patients to bear weight on their foot early . The ability to do so can dramatically improve your recovery process, allowing you to walk up to 6-8 weeks earlier than with the more traditional Lapidus approach (which was previously the only option for addressing the unstable joint).

Being able to walk in a surgical boot, as opposed to being completely non-weight bearing (in a cast with scooter or crutches) for 6-8 weeks, means that you will be getting back to a better quality of life faster; may return to most occupations more quickly, and will be less inconvenienced by bunion surgery.
