Lapiplasty is a new surgical innovation that has forever changed the world of bunion surgery! This new spin on a well-established and trusted surgical procedure now allows for smaller incisions, quicker healing times, and sooner weight-bearing.
Painful bunions can be a major nuisance to a lot of patients, but we have been successfully treating them for years. This new technique is a game-changer and has truly advanced the treatment and management of this very common condition.
An exostosis is a medical term used to describe new bone growth on top of existing bone. It can be used synonymously with the word "spur". The most common locations for an exostosis to form in the foot are the heel, midfoot and big toe joint. Many times bone spurs exist and do not cause symptoms. Unfortunately, some become symptomatic or are simply "visible and palpable" and require further attention.
