How to Fix Your Aching Feet


April 3, 2024 – Dr. Brad Schaeffer recently spoke with the AARP Magazine about the most common foot problems patients often experience as they age such as bunions, hammertoes and plantar fasciitis. He also detailed treatment options for the conditions.

“Bunions are a deformity that occurs when an unstable midfoot joint leads to misaligned bones,” Dr. Schaeffer said. He explained that some bunion symptoms can first be treated by relieving pressure and treating inflammation1,2.

Dr. Schaeffer also suggested treating a bunion with surgery, highlighting Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction® as an approach that secures the unstable bones in the foot and corrects the bunion’s root cause3.

Lapiplasty® is a surgical procedure. The opinions expressed by this doctor are their own and not necessarily that of TMC Inc. Individual results vary, there are risks, and recovery takes time. Risks include infection, pain, implant loosening and loss of correction with improper bone healing. For more information on benefits, risks and recovery, visit
