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.
