Bunions are a 3D Problem- Here’s a 3D Solution
July 20, 2021— Dr. Christopher Suykerbuyk of AZ Choice Foot and Ankle was interviewed during a segment of Sonoran Living on ABC 15 Arizona. He explained why a growing number of his patients who suffer from pain due to bunions are choosing to undergo Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ instead of traditional bunionectomy procedures. An article accompanying the interview also detailed his discussion with the show’s host.
“Bunions are a common problem that frequently gets neglected by sufferers of this painful condition. They affect about 25% of people in the United States alone and while they are most commonly seen in older women, men, teenagers and even children can develop bunions.”1
Dr. Suykerbuyk discussed the complex bone deformity that causes bunions to appear. He used foot models to describe how traditional bunion removal procedures work versus how the Lapiplasty® Procedure is performed. 2
Dr. Suykerbuyk has found that his patients are very pleased with the results of the Lapiplasty® Procedure. After a few short months, they are able to return to walking, running and hiking without the pain once caused by their bunions.
