This patient had both bunions surgically corrected with Lapiplasty® Triplane Bunion Correction in the same year. She is just over a year post op on both feet. The x-rays and clincal picture demonstrate the power of this procedure to restore normal anatomic alignment of the first metatarsal and big toe joint.
Lapiplasty® Triplane Bunion Correction provides consistent deformity correction of bunions with 3D anatomic realignment of the foot to restore more normal foot architecture, resulting in long term resolution of the deformity. Lapiplasty® is the bunion correction procedure of choice for the surgeons at Foot & Ankle Center of Iowa/Midwest Bunion Centers in patients with a non-arthritic big toe joint. Dr. Paul Dayton, DPM and Dr. Mindi Dayton, DPM have been actively researching and publishing on bunions and the surgical correction of them since 2009. They feel strongly about providing their patients with the most evidence based bunion surgery treatment that has the best long term published results. They have performed over 400 bunion deformity corrections with the Lapiplasty® system and are currently involved in a long-term clinical outcome study of the procedure.
