Lapiplasty Now Offered at Foot & Ankle Specialists of Delaware County, LLC

Monday, 08 July 2019 16:41

Dr. Samuel and Dr. Friis completed a cadaver training seminar and were the first to perform the Lapiplasty procedure in the Crozer Keystone Health System at Brinton Lake Surgical Center this past June. They are quite pleased with their outcomes and are excited to add this technique to their practice.  

Lapiplasty is designed to correct bunions by addressing the source of the deformity at the base of the first metatarsal. The 3-dimensional correction makes it much less likely that the bunion returns and the fixation in a Lapiplasty allows for patients to be weight bearing much earlier in the healing process, many times within 7-14 days, following surgery, wearing a walking boot. Lapiplasty may not be for everyone and a thorough evaluation would be required to determine if patients are candidates for this technique. They are both excited to offer this new technique that may enhance their patient’s long term outcomes.
