August 1, 2021— Dr. Amber Morra of Vero Beach Orthopedics recently wrote an article that was featured as sponsored content in Vero Beach Magazine. She explained what bunions are, dispelled the common myth that they are caused by wearing high heeled shoes, and detailed treatment options that are available to patients. She discussed Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™, an option that many of her patients are choosing over traditional bunionectomy procedures.
“The Lapiplasty® Procedure has made an amazing difference in the lives of my patients suffering from bunions,” said Dr. Morra. “It addresses the bunion’s root cause by repositioning the misaligned bones in the foot in their proper places and securing them with two small titanium plates.”
Dr. Morra detailed the benefits of the Lapiplasty® Procedure that distinguish it from traditional bunionectomies. These include the fact that patients can typically get back on their feet in a walking boot within a couple of weeks of surgery and return to usual physical activities within four to six months of surgery.
Dr. Morra said in the article that she finds it rewarding to see her patients return to running, biking, skiing, and hiking without the pain from bunions they used to suffer from.
