3D Bunion Removal
Certified Lapiplasty® Surgeon
3D bunion surgery is a new, innovative technique that allows for fast recovery time and a better treatment outcome for the majority of patients.
Bunions are a progressive problem that can affect other areas of the foot. Traditional bunion surgery takes a one-dimensional approach. It “fixes” the problem by correcting its most obvious symptom, The protrusion of the metatarsal bone. The problem is that it leaves the less obvious symptoms intact, making the recurrence of the bunion a disheartening 70%.
Luckily, with Lapiplasty (3D bunion surgery), all of the root causes of the bunion are addressed, which fixes the cosmetic factor (the visible “bump”) and the invisible problems that cause pain and recurrence.

3D union Removal Vs Traditional Bunion Surgery
Traditional 2D Procedure
The majority of bunion surgeries today are osteotomies. This surgery attempts to correct the problem by cutting away the bunion and shifting of the metatarsal bone. This 2D approach doesn’t address all of the problems, and in many cases only serves as a temporary fix.
3D Bunion Removal
3D bunion removal is a comprehensive approach that addresses the bunion as well as the underlying cause. As a result, the cosmetic’s of the bunion are fixed as well as the pain that comes with it.
Traditional Bunion Surgery Recovery
12-16 Weeks – wearing running shoes again
Traditional bunion surgery is typically followed by the uses of a cast, crutches, and a scooter until the patient is able to walk in a surgical boot 6-8 weeks after the procedure. The patient is typically back in tennis shoes within 12-16 weeks. Unfortunately, the recurrence rate of the bunion with traditional procedures is nearly 70%.
3D Lapiplasty® Surgery Recovery
6 weeks – wearing running shoes again
3D bunion removal (Lapiplasty®) allows you to be up and moving within a couple of days of surgery with no casting. A boot will be worn for 6 weeks, after which you can return to normal foot wear, And since all of the underlying causes are addressed, the bunion has a very low instance of recurrence.
