Lapiplasty

Lapiplasty

bunionsurgery

Lapiplasty refers to a type of jig or guide that is used to preform bunion surgery. Issaquah Foot & Ankle Specialists has been executing the Lapidus bunion procedure for greater than 20 years. We have extensive experience with bunions and bunion surgery. We make all our recommendations of bunion surgeries based on our years of experience and thousands of procedures that we have performed. The Lapiplasty is the #1 bunion product in the US right now and helps to guide the surgeon in the correct cut, compression and fixation. The technique involves the surgeon:

1. Make the correction of the bunion before they cut

2. Preform precision cuts

3. Achieve controlled compression of joint surfaces

4. Apply multiplanar fixation for robust stability

The idea with the use of this system is to get reproducible results and the best possible outcomes for patients. If you have a bunion and are interested in getting the best possible results, give us a call at 425-391-8666 or schedule an appointment with us to see if you are a candidate for the Lapiplasty.
