I wanted to just talk about the differences between lapiplasty surgery which is the 3D bunion correction that I think is the game changer and the oldfashioned Lapidus bunionectomy listen there are multiple ways to skin a cat but we've figured out one of the best ways in a very long time to have a minimal invasive surgical procedure which is the lapiplasty we also have figured out a way to create a jig system shout out to tce for that to fix everything in a three-dimensional plane and if you think about the Leaning Tower of Pisa if that building is off to the side you can fix it at the head you can fix it at the shaft or you can fix it at the base if you fix that tower at the base it's going to fix everything in a three-dimensional plane and everything is going to be straight up and down no one's going to see the leaning Tower of Pisa but it's going to be perfect and everyone's going to be living there relaxed so the building doesn't fall we don't want our building to fall that's why this lapop plasty procedure is the game changer this is a plated technique they also have a staple technique which allows for a more minimal invasive incision to really get everything aligned properly and held for the long term Lapidus surgery we would go in there and make a cut in this joint it's the first metaform joint when you make a cut in that joint with a saw sometimes you don't get it over properly in that three-dimensional plane it sometimes just rotates can be surgeon air can be technique there's a lot of factors to it with the lapop plasy procedure there is a jig system to hold it plate it and keep it there forever for the long term that's what I rep that's what we rep at Central Park Soul give us a call anytime we'll get you in ASAP thanks a lot.

What is Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Surgery?

If you're suffering from painful bunions impacting your quality of life, Lapiplasty 3D bunion surgery may provide the relief you need. Lapiplasty is an advanced, minimally invasive bunion surgery that corrects the root cause of bunions for lasting results. And if you're looking for the best Lapiplasty bunion surgeon New York has to offer, look no further than Dr. Brad Schaeffer (The star of TLC's "My Feet Are Killing Me") at Central Park SOLE on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. 

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