Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ Helps Eldon Runner Get Back On Her Feet

August 11, 2019 – Dr. Jody McAleer at JCMG Podiatry in Jefferson City, MO, describes Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ as “the realignment of the bones in three planes and dialing in the corrections. You’re restoring the person’s natural anatomy.” He explained to Jefferson City News Tribune health reporter Joe Gamm that unlike traditional osteotomy surgery which cuts and shifts the part of the bone that is misaligned, the Lapiplasty® Procedure corrects the deformity at its root cause by realigning the bones. “If a doctor were to show you an X-ray of the repaired foot and covered the plates, you wouldn’t be able to tell the repaired foot from an otherwise healthy foot.”

His patient, April, 52, trains for marathons running local roads. “The bunion and the joint discomfort in my foot made it difficult to put weight on my foot,” Leonard said. “It was getting difficult to run.”

She had the Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ procedure done on her left foot and was released to continuing running 4 months after her surgery and was even able to return to run a marathon 10 months after surgery. April “wishes the Lapiplasty® Procedure would have been available 20 years ago. I’m not as young as I used to be but I’m not as old as I will be. So I’m glad I did it now.”
