What is Lapiplasty?

There’s a solution for your bunion — and a way to fix the source of your pain. Dr. Naghmeh Lilly Khavari of the Carrollton Foot Center is pleased to offer Lapiplasty ®, an innovative 3D bunion correction procedure. Bunions are a common foot problem that can cause pain for many patients. Traditional surgeries may reduce the pain; however, they don’t address the root problem. Learn more about this innovative procedure and contact us today.     

What is a bunion?

A bunion is much more than the bump alongside your big toe joint. It’s a progressive toe deformity that will only worsen over time. For some patients, walking can become painful. Over time, these progressive toe deformities can also lead to hammertoes and arthritis.

How does this procedure help?

Lapiplasty ® fixes the alignment of the unstable bone anatomy, which causes the toe deformity. The benefit is that this procedure offers a permanent solution by treating the root cause of the bunion. Here are additional benefits:

  • Restore your natural anatomy with one surgery.
  • Wear shoes without the worry of your condition worsening.
  • Treat your pain for good.

What’s after surgery?

Within days of surgery, patients can walk in a boot — not a cast. We love to share that our patients can skip the casts and have minimal downtime. While patients must still take it easy, a boot helps them ease back into regular activities.

A Minimally Invasive Procedure for Painful Bunions

If your painful bunion is interfering with your daily activities, it may be time to consider additional treatment options. When most patients think of surgery, they begin to think about how many days they will be off their feet. It could impact work, family, and other responsibilities. Dr. Naghmeh Lilly Khavari of the Carrollton Foot Center is pleased to share that her office will now offer the miniBunion™ procedure. This cutting-edge, minimally invasive technique repairs bunions and eliminates the pain.

What is a bunion?

A toe deformity causes this condition. It looks like a bony bump on the side of your big toe joint. Also known as a progressive disorder, this toe deformity will continue to increase and may cause pain for some patients.

What makes this technique different from other treatments?

During this minimally invasive procedure, doctors make a small incision. The size is 2-4 times smaller than a standard technique. A smaller incision lessens the trauma to the soft-tissues surrounding the patient’s toes. Benefits include less pain, a smaller scar, and faster recovery.

Talk with your doctor about the best treatment. There are conservative treatments, which do not require surgery. You may also consider open bunion surgery, which may require multiple, longer incisions, and an extended period of rehabilitation and recovery.

How does this bunion treatment work?

First, on the side of the foot, a small incision is made, the toe realigned, and the doctor inserts the miniBunion™ micro-implant. Then, the incision is closed with stitches. Soon after surgery and removal of the stitches, the scar is small, and it can fade over time.

Will this procedure treat my toe deformity?

Before making a decision, make an appointment with your podiatrist. Bunion pain can differ for patients, so discuss the miniBunion™ procedure with your podiatrist.

Contact our office today to determine if the miniBunion™ procedure is the right treatment for your condition. Dr. Naghmeh Lilly Khavari can walk you through the procedure, answer questions, or discuss other treatment options. Call us at (469) 998-3668.
