Dr. Brandon Nelson, Board-Certified Foot and Ankle Surgeon, Discusses 3-D Bunion Correction

Bunion xray

Bunions
are by far the most common surgical procedure I perform.  At this point in my career after practicing more than 10 years, I have performed thousands of bunion procedures.  Bunion surgery itself is a highly successful procedure that has great outcomes and patient satisfaction.

The 3-D bunion correction or lapiplasty is a great tool that has accelerated the bunion surgery techniques.  I find the procedure itself can be easily reproducible and has great long-term success.  This is a great tool for large bunions and for patients that have had long-standing bunion deformities.  It is important to see somebody but has experience performing this technique, because there are some technical challenges.

The Lapidus or lapiplasty is a most common bunion procedure I perform and I have found it to be extremely powerful surgical tool.  If you have a long-standing bunion deformity and have had pain and irritation and are contemplating surgical reconstruction please make an appointment.  I will happily review your x-rays and possible surgical options.

Sincerely,

Brandon Nelson
