Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™

At Advanced Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, we are dedicated to providing our patients with advanced, evidence-based treatment options. This includes the latest procedures for the most common problems, such as bunions.

Helping patients permanently kick discomfort from bunion deformity, specialty-trained podiatrist Dr. Glenn Henning and fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Joseph A. Polio are the only providers in the Owensboro area who are offering the Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction Procedure to help you continue to enjoy your active and healthy life.

What Is Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction?

An innovative surgical treatment for bunions, Lapiplasty corrects the root of the problem of bunion deformity—the unstable joint that creates the appearance of a bump on the side of the foot.

Using state-of-the-art tools, your Lapiplasty surgeon will be able to realign the affected joint to its original anatomical position during the procedure. This both straightens the toe and removes the appearance of a bump. Your surgeon will then stabilize the joint with titanium plating, securing the joint while also allowing you to get back on your feet quickly after surgery.

What Makes Lapiplasty Different?

Traditional bunion surgeries are focused on the appearance of the foot. However, Lapiplasty addresses the physical problem at the foundation, which helps the foot both look normal again and function normally.

Unlike other bunion correction surgeries, Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction does the following:

  • Allows you to walk within days of surgery
  • Creates a stable foundation
  • Fixes the source of the problem—the unstable joint
  • Precisely corrects the 3D metatarsal alignment
  • Provides a permanent solution
  • Restores normal anatomy
