LAPIPLASTY® 3-Dimensional Bunion Correction is a new, advanced technology for surgically correcting your bunions.  LAPIPLASTY® is the first and only procedure specifically developed to correct all 3-dimensions of the bunion deformity, at the root of the problem.  Rather than cutting and shifting the bone over as traditional 2D surgery does, LAPIPLASTY® uses advanced instrumentation to precisely reposition the entire misaligned bone back into normal 3D alignment.


How long will I be off my feet after surgery?

The LAPIPLASTY® Procedure utilizes advanced fixation technology, published in the Journal of Foot & Ankle Surgery, that allows many patients to put weight on their foot within days after surgery. Actual time to weight bearing will vary, but typically ranges from immediately after surgery to 2-3 weeks.1


Will I have to wear a cast after the surgery?

No, most patients will have their foot wrapped in bandages for a few days and then use a surgical boot to walk during recovery.

Can I return to fashionable shoes?

The LAPIPLASTY® Procedure allows most patients to return to their desired shoe gear without any limitations. Of course some fashionable shoes can be painful (even with a normal foot), so results can vary from person to person and shoe to shoe.


Can I play sports after the LAPIPLASTY® Procedure?

Yes, there are no permanent activity limitations after the LAPIPLASTY® Procedure. Most patients are able to return to sports after the bones have completely healed at approximately 4 months.

About the author

The Modern Podiatrist (Foot and Ankle Specialist Doctor):Today's podiatrist is required to undergo rigorous medical training that licenses them as physicians with equivalent legal standing to the MD and DO degree (These are physician recognized licenses most common only in the USA). Although admittedly the training does differ between the three degrees. The differences are listed below.In Michigan Podiatrists are trained and authorized to perform surgery in the foot and ankle up to the tibial tubercle below the knee.All our podiatrists and foot doctors have undergone rigorous training including a 4 undergraduate college degree, writing the medical school entrance exam (MCAT), followed by a 4 year medical school degree (DPM - Doctor of Podiatric Medicine),Once podiatrists in the USA complete the rigorous 4 year medical school courses, they are required to complete a minimum of 3 years of a surgical and non-surgical residency program. Some podiatrists and foot doctors then choose to go on to further fellowship training specializing in various forms of specialty such as diabetic surgery or reconstructive foot and ankle surgery.The training is not over yet! Each podiatrist must be judged by a governing body where they submit their surgical cases and are reviewed regularly to ensure excellent results. This is a career long evaluation with board qualifications and certifications every few years.So have faith that today's podiatrist is your best choice for your foot and ankle problems! We are able to approach you foot and ankle problems from a non-surgery perspective, but that when necessary we can provide you with the treatment that you need!All articles written by this account are considered to be for educational purposes only.
