WBTV’s “QC Morning.”
December 27, 2021 — Recently, Dr. Bradley Lind, a podiatric surgery specialist at Ryan Foot & Ankle Clinic, was featured in a sponsored segment on WBTV’s “QC Morning.” He explained what bunions are, how they form and what options are available to treat them including Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™.
“Bunions come from an unstable joint at the midfoot,” says Dr. Lind. That instability causes a shift of the big toe, which causes a bump on the side of the foot.
“Patients can start with a wider shoe or inserts for the shoe to help support the foot better, but the only way to get the bone to go backward is to surgically correct it,” explained Dr. Lind.
Previous two-dimensional procedures cut and shifted the head of the bone near the big toe joint. Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ System corrects the deformity in all three planes, securing the unstable joint. This method typically allows patients to get back on their feet within one or two weeks while wearing a surgical walking boot.1
