3D Bunion Correction
Advanced Bunion Treatment
Bunions are three-dimensional issues that are often incorrectly addressed with two-dimensional solutions. As a result, many people who have received traditional bunion surgery still experience foot and ankle pain. In other cases, their bunions have even grown back. To get the job done right the first time, Foot and Ankle Specialists of Central PA offers Lapiplasty® 3D bunion surgery to eliminate your discomfort for good.
Bunions: The Root Problem
Bunions are a common ailment. Simply put, they are painful, bony bumps that form at your big toe joint. However, these deformities are actually quite complex, stemming from issues with one of your metatarsal bones. When the joint formed by this bone becomes unstable, it causes the following three bone issues:
- A sideways lean
- Upward elevation
- Rotation out of alignment
Together, these issues form the painful bumps that we know as bunions. The problem is that traditional bunion surgery does not account for the rotation of the metatarsal bone, leaving patients at risk for future bunion development even after receiving treatment. That’s why Foot and Ankle Specialists of Central PA offers a state-of-the-art treatment that targets each of these issues equally to eliminate your bunion once and for all.
Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction: The Permanent Solution
Our skilled care providers offer Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction surgery to target and eliminate our patients’ bunions. Instead of cutting your bone in half and shifting the top of it over, our team uses special instruments to rotate your bone back to its normal anatomical position, straightening your toe naturally along the way.
To secure the unstable foundation of your joint, we attach two patented titanium plates to your bone. Not only does this help eliminate your pain, but it also significantly decreases the chance that you will develop another bunion. Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction eliminates the guesswork, usually taking less than an hour to complete and addressing all three dimensions of your bunion at once.
