Your podiatrist in Asheville, NC, can help with bunion pain.
Bunions can keep you from enjoying life, making even the most simple tasks, like putting on shoes, difficult or impossible. Bunion treatment has been around for a while, but now there is an exciting new way to treat bunions and get you back on your feet. It’s called Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction.
Dr. Daniel Waldman of Blue Ridge Foot Centers in Asheville, NC, offers comprehensive foot care services, including innovative bunion surgery with Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction. Dr. Waldman is board certified in foot surgery by the American Board of Pediatric Surgeons. He teaches the latest procedures in foot surgery including minimal incision technique.
The more traditional ways of treating bunions include:
- Wearing custom-fit orthotics or footwear
- Shaving calluses and corns to relieve friction
- Surgical treatment, known as a bunionectomy
Now, there is a new, more effective way to treat bunions, known as Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction. It works because unlike traditional methods, lapiplasty eliminates bunions by working in three dimensions, correcting the underlying joint misalignment and instability.
Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction works because it uses instruments specifically designed to move the entire bone back into its normal position, which straightens the toe and removes the bump. The unstable joint is secured with two small titanium plates, to keep your toe and foot in alignment and prevent the bunion from recurring. The technology works so well that patients are able to get back on their feet only days after surgery.
Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction has many advantages over traditional surgery. Consider that Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction:
- Doesn’t require casting
- Is weight-bearing within days
- Allows you to walk in a surgical boot within 6 weeks, which is 6 to 8 weeks sooner than traditional bunion surgery
