January 18, 2021 – In an interview with Marketplace Pittsburgh, Dr. William DeCarbo, a podiatrist at St. Clair Orthopedic Associates in Pittsburgh, discussed how and why bunions occur as well as what sets Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction apart from traditional bunion treatment procedure options.

“Traditional surgery focuses on a 2D osteotomy approach… but it still leaves the bones in the foot crooked underneath the skin.”

Dr. DeCarbo explained that the Lapiplasty® Procedure addresses all three dimensions of the bone deformity. He also noted that the procedure can be performed through a small incision and that it is possible for patients to bear weight on their foot, in a protected boot, on the same day of surgery.1,2

Dr. DeCarbo has observed a low recurrence rate in patients who undergo this procedure. He attributes this to the Lapiplasty® Procedure’s ability to address the bunion’s root cause rather than simply addressing the cosmetic element of the condition.
