Bunions Are More Than A Bump

Bunions are a 3D problem

A common misconception is that a bunion is simply an overgrowth of bone that can simply be “shaved off”; however bunions are complex deformities caused by an unstable joint (i.e. unstable foundation) in the middle of the foot that allows the bones to drift out of alignment in 3 dimensions. Learn More

Bunion Deformity
An unstable foundation allows the metatarsal bone to drift out of 3D alignment, causing the visible “bump” on the inside of the foot.

Osteotomies (Traditional Surgery)
“Osteotomies” target the cosmetic bump by cutting and shifting the bone in 2D, but do not address all 3 dimensions of the deformity or the unstable foundation.

Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction
This advanced procedure precisely corrects the 3D metatarsal alignment and secures the foundation, allowing you to walk within days of surgery.1

Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction was designed

because osteotomy surgery has proven to be inconsistent.

Osteotomies offer a partial fix only by addressing the cosmetic “bump”; but leaving the root cause unaddressed.

Recent multicenter clinical data demonstrated that
97% of Lapiplasty® patients maintained their
3D Bunion Correction at 13 months.5

Important Risk Information: Only a surgeon can tell if the Lapiplasty® Procedure is right for you. As with any medical treatment, individual results may vary. There are potential risks and recovery takes time. Potential risks include but are not limited to infection, discomfort from the presence of the implant, loosening of the implant, and loss of correction with nonunion or malunion.
