lapiplasty Bunion Repair
At Carrollton Foot Center, we are committed to providing the best possible treatment options for our patients, and one of the most innovative options we offer is Lapiplasty bunion surgery.
Traditional bunion surgery involves a 2D correction, which means the surgeon only corrects the bunion in one direction. However, with Lapiplasty bunion surgery, we are able to correct the deformity in all three dimensions, which allows for a much more stable and long-lasting correction.
This surgery is considered when the patient has a moderate to severe bunion with first ray hypermobility. First ray hypermobility is when the bones in the front part of the foot are excessively mobile and can cause the bunion to return after surgery. With Lapiplasty bunion surgery, we are able to address this issue and provide a more permanent correction.
The procedure involves making a small incision in the side of the foot and using specialized instruments to correct the deformity in all three dimensions. The bones are then held in place with a titanium plate, which allows for faster healing and return to activities.
Patients who undergo Lapiplasty bunion surgery can expect a quicker recovery time than with traditional bunion surgery. They are usually able to walk on their foot within days after the surgery, and can typically return to regular activities within a few weeks.
At Carrollton Foot Center, Dr. Khavari is highly trained and experienced in Lapiplasty bunion surgery. She will evaluate your bunion deformity and determine if this procedure is right for you. Our goal is to provide our patients with the best possible outcome, so they can get back to their regular activities without the pain and discomfort of a bunion.
