Traditional Lapidus Fusion

Corrects Unstable Joint; Extended Time Off Feet

  • Secures the unstable joint, but only a 2D correction

  • Results dependent on freehand surgery without precision instruments

  • Requires extended period of complete non-weight bearing1

Traditional Lapidus fusion is a technically challenging procedure that addresses the root of the problem (the unstable joint), but it is performed “freehand” without advanced instrumentation and only corrects 2 dimensions of the 3D deformity (still shaving the bump as well). Further, the unstable joint is typically secured with only one plate (versus two plates with the Lapiplasty® Procedure), which has been shown to be less stable2 and typically requires the patient to be completely off their feet for 6-8 weeks (often in a cast).1

How Does Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction compare to traditional Lapidus procedures?

“The morbidity of prolonged cast immobilization and non-weight bearing can be very challenging for many patients and might not be practical in all cases.”
