Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction® on FOX Carolina
Surgery known as Lapiplasty® helps address bunions at the root cause
August 7th, 2023 – Dr. Jason Glover and his patient, Vera were recently interviewed by a reporter for a segment featuring Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction® Vera detailed the bunion symptoms that eventually led her to seek treatment for the condition and Dr. Glover explained how the Lapiplasty® Procedure works from a physician perspective.
“The Lapiplasty® Procedure has been available for a few years,” explained Dr. Glover. “It involves fixing the problem at its foundation where the bunion comes from as opposed to making a cut anywhere else in the bone”.1,2
At 68 years old, Vera enjoyed an active lifestyle until her bunions progressed and her foot pain became unbearable.
“I was so uncomfortable I could barely wear shoes,” Vera said. “I went from walking between four and six miles a day to being unable to stand for more than 15 minutes or so.”
Vera explained that when looking for a treatment option, she told Dr. Gover that her priority was getting her quality of life back and being able to return to traveling and exploring the world on foot. Three months after undergoing her procedure and spending some time recovering in a surgical walking boot, she was cleared for physical activity and was recently able to hike four miles.
