Bilateral Lapiplasty® Triplane Bunion Correction: Pre & Post-Op X-rays

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.

Anesthesia, Multi Modal Pain Regimen and Breastmilk

Anesthesia while breastfeeding is a topic that really isn’t discussed. Often times when it is discussed, the mother is typically told to pump and dump their breastmilk for at least 24 hours. Thankfully for nursing mothers, this is not actually needed.

New Original Research Published

This original research highlights the benefits of soft tissue and bone width reduction in patients undergoing the Lapiplasty 3D bunion correction.

There is more than meets the eye with a bunion.

While you may not currently have significant symptoms, bunions are progressive and will most likely result in joint damage to the big toe joint over time, as well as the potential for other deformities.
