Bunion Removal Surgery at FASCO


Bunions are a common foot deformity that can cause significant discomfort and affect your ability to walk comfortably. A bunion is a bony bump that forms at the base of your big toe due to misalignment, and it can lead to swelling, redness, and tenderness, making everyday activities such as walking or wearing shoes incredibly painful.

Many factors can contribute to the development of bunions, including genetic predisposition, foot injuries, and arthritis. Over time, if left untreated, bunions can worsen and lead to other complications like hammertoes and bursitis.

Foot Bunion Treatment From The Best Bunion Surgeon Near You

Lapiplasty® Bunion Correction Surgery

Bunions are a prevalent yet often misunderstood foot condition that can drastically impact an individual's mobility and quality of life. Characterized by a bony bump that forms on the side of the big toe, bunions develop due to the misalignment of the metatarsophalangeal joint. The discomfort associated with bunions can make walking, standing, or even wearing regular shoes a challenging ordeal.

At FASCO, we are dedicated to providing the most advanced and effective treatments for bunions. One of the innovative solutions we offer is Lapiplasty® Bunion Correction Surgery. Unlike traditional bunion surgery methods that simply shave off the protrusion, Lapiplasty surgery focuses on fixing the root cause by addressing the unstable joint that leads to the bunion.

Lapiplasty is a groundbreaking "3D" approach to bunion correction that realigns the metatarsal bone on all three planes, thereby restoring the foot's natural anatomy. The biggest advantage of this procedure is its ability to correct the deformity at its source, rather than just treating the superficial bump. The surgery uses advanced tools to rotate the misaligned bone back into its proper position, then stabilize the joint using specially designed fixation plates.

Our team of expert bunion surgeons is highly trained in performing foot and ankle surgeries, utilizing state-of-the-art technology and techniques to deliver optimal outcomes.

With its innovative approach to correcting the root cause of bunions and its proven track record of success, Lapiplasty offers a promising solution for patients seeking long-term relief. To learn more about Lapiplasty and to see if it’s right for you, we invite you to schedule a consultation with one of our specialized providers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes bunions?

Several factors contribute to the formation of bunions, including genetic predisposition, foot injuries, and underlying conditions such as arthritis. Wearing ill-fitting shoes or high heels can also exacerbate existing bunions or accelerate their development.

How is Lapiplasty® surgery different from traditional bunion surgery?

Unlike traditional bunion surgery, which only shaves off the protruding bump, Lapiplasty surgery addresses the root cause by correcting the misaligned metatarsophalangeal joint. This three-dimensional approach restores the foot's natural anatomy and provides long-term stability, reducing the risk of recurrence.

How long does it take to recover from Lapiplasty®?

One of the most significant benefits of Lapiplasty is the reduced recovery period. Patients are typically able to bear weight on their foot within days after surgery, allowing them to resume normal activities much sooner than with other bunion correction methods. Additionally, the stability provided by the fixation plates ensures that the correction is permanent, significantly lowering the risk of the bunion returning.
