TREACE LAPIPLASTY FOR LARGER TRIPLANE BUNION CORRECTION

Bunions are a 3D problem

A common misconception is that a bunion is simply an overgrowth of bone that can simply be “shaved off”; however bunions are complex deformities caused by an unstable joint (i.e. unstable foundation) in the middle of the foot that allows the bones to drift out of alignment in 3 dimensions.

Bunion Deformity

An unstable foundation allows the metatarsal bone to drift out of 3D alignment, causing the visible “bump” on the inside of the foot.

Osteotomies (Traditional Surgery)

“Osteotomies” target the cosmetic bump by cutting and shifting the bone in 2D, but do not address all 3 dimensions of the deformity or the unstable foundation.

Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™

This advanced procedure precisely corrects the 3D metatarsal alignment and secures the foundation, allowing you to walk within days of surgery.
