What is Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Surgery?Bunion On Foot

Lapiplasty is a state-of-the-art 3D bunion correction surgery that goes beyond simply removing the bony bump of a bunion. While traditional bunion surgery focuses on shaving down the protruding bone, Lapiplasty actually shifts and corrects the entire misaligned bone structure that is causing the bunion.

How Lapiplasty Bunion Surgery Works

By rotating the affected metatarsal bone back into its proper anatomical position and permanently securing it there, Lapiplasty addresses the underlying cause of the bunion deformity. This 3D surgical approach leads to a more effective and lasting correction than conventional 2D osteotomy procedures. Studies have shown that Lapiplasty reduces the risk of bunion recurrence to less than 3%, over 12 times lower than traditional bunion surgery.
