Bunion surgery continues to evolve and techniques continue to change. Recently there has been a lot of talk about the Lapiplasty technique. The Lapiplasty technique is used for large bunions or people with hypermobile foot structures. The procedure basically involves the use of a jig. The surgeon aligns the jig on the foot in the correct orientation.

The cuts to correct the bunion are then performed and then the joint is compressed. Once controlled compression is achieved the joint is fixated in multiple planes. The Lapiplasty technique is a highly effective tool that can make bunion correction easier. Issaquah Foot & Ankle Specialists have been performing Lapidus procedures for more than 20 years.
