At Kansas Joint & Spine Specialists, we are dedicated to offering our patients the latest and most advanced evidence-based treatment options. That’s why we proudly offer the Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction Procedure for patients who are suffering from bunions.
Offered by our board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Mohamed Mahomed, the Lapiplasty Procedure provides patients with a permanent solution for bunions that allows them to get back to an active, healthy lifestyle quickly.
What Is Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction?
An advanced surgical procedure for bunions, Lapiplasty focuses on correcting the root of the problem—the unstable joint. Using specially designed tools, the affected bone is rotated back to its original anatomical position during the procedure. This not only addresses the problem but also straightens the toe, removing the visual bump. The joint is then stabilized with titanium plating, which secures the joint as well as allows patients to quickly get back on their feet following surgery.
What Makes Lapiplasty Different?
Traditional treatment options for bunions focus on fixing the cosmetic appearance of the foot. Because of this, 70% of bunions treated with traditional treatment methods return. However, Lapiplasty focuses on treating the unstable joint, which provides a permanent solution because it:
- Addresses the bunion in three dimensions
- Creates a stable foundation
- Returns the bone to its normal anatomical position
- Treats the unstable joint
