We at Foot & Ankle Center of Iowa take innovation seriously and as a team we have published over 75 research papers, book chapters, and scholarly articles. We regularly share our research with podiatrists, orthopedic doctors, nurses and patients throughout the United States.

The podiatric surgeons at Foot & Ankle Center of Iowa have been instrumental in changing the way bunions are treated in the United States. For the past 12 years we have researched the anatomy and cause of bunions and have developed breakthrough techniques to improve the reliability and quality of bunion surgery. Working with Treace Medical Concepts Inc, a leading medical technology company, and a group of dedicated podiatry and orthopedic design surgeons, Dr. Dayton has helped develop a new patented method called Lapiplasty ® to correct the deformity at the root of the problem.
