Lapiplasty® Bunion Correction
A bunion is a bone deformity caused by an enlargement of the joint at the base and side of the big toe (metatarsophalangeal joint). Bunions form when the toe moves out of place. The enlargement and its protuberance cause friction and pressure as they rub against footwear.
Lapiplasty Video Overview
Over time, the movement of the big toe angles in toward the other toes, sometimes overlapping a third toe (known as Hallux Valgus). The growing enlargement or protuberance then causes more irritation or inflammation. In some cases, the big toe moves toward the second toe and rotates or twists, which is known as Hallus Abducto Valgus. Bunions can also lead to other toe deformities, such as hammertoe .
Idaho Foot and Ankle Center is now offering an innovative procedure called Lapiplasty®, which is designed to permanently secure the root cause of your bunion. Lapiplasty can help you get on the path to recovery quicker than with traditional bunion surgeries. Traditional osteotomy (2D surgery) has been associated with a high rate of recurrence. Lapiplasty® patients can be less likely to have their bunion return. Find more information on the Lapiplasty® procedure below.
