Experienced Foot Doctors For Bunions in Kansas City, MO

bunions in kansas city moThe majority of bunions are genetic. However, bunions can also be caused by abnormal foot function, an injury to your foot, or if you have arthritis. A bunion is a bony prominence caused by a shifting in position of the first metatarsal. When the same thing occurs on the joint of your little toe, it’s called a bunionette.

Bunions can be painful or not, depending on a number of factors. If your bunions don’t bother you, then you may not even need treatment. However, you may want to visit The Foot Doctors of Kansas City to discuss preventative measures you can take to avoid making your bunions worse.

Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction – For a Complete, Permanent Bunion Solution!

Bunions are more than an unsightly bump that can be shaved away. Bunions are complex deformities that cause the metatarsal bone to:

  1. Lean sideways, creating an unstable foundation like the Leaning Tower of Pisa
  2. Elevate off the ground, transferring excessive pressure to other toes, like a chair leaning sideways
  3. Rotate, causing abnormal wear and tear like a car out of alignment

Commonly, podiatrists perform a 2D osteotomy in which the metatarsal bone is cut in half and pushed over. This addresses the bump but not the root cause. However, bunions are a 3D problem so this approach does not solve the root cause. It’s just a band-aid on the problem because the unstable joint remains so the bunion can return. In fact, up to 50% of patients undergoing bunion surgery experience the return of their bunion.

Now, there is a more innovative and thorough solution – the Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction. This fixes it right the first time, permanently! Lapiplasty precisely corrects the entire bone – a 3D solution for a 3D problem. Plus, patients can walk within days of surgery, bypassing the lengthy 2D healing time. At The Foot Doctors of Kansas City, we will heal your bunions faster and forever with Lapiplasty 3D Bunion surgery.
