Not your grandmothers bunion surgery! Reliable, Reducible, No Reocurrence
Are Bunions Limiting Your Activities and Lifestyle?
Bunions can be very painful. With each step, 85 % of your entire body weight goes through that bunion. Ouch! A common misconception about a bunion is that it is an overgrowth of bone that can simply be “shaved off”. Bunions are complex deformities caused by an unstable joint and must be fixed at their root with Lapiplasty.
All NEW Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction
Relief is here. Now, there’s a new, patented treatment for bunion correction. Dr. Schoenhaus is offering this exciting, new treatment option which does more than simply remove “the bump”; it addresses your bunion in three dimensions to correct the root of the problem so the bunion does not come back. Advanced fixation technology is used to secure the correction in place, which allows patients to walk within days of surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Gold, he will determine if a Lapiplasty is the best option for you.
What can I expect from the treatment process?
Step 1 - You will have a consultation with the doctor where an examination is performed and X-rays will be taken on site and reviewed with you. We will ensure the Lapiplasty procedure is right for you.

While traditional 2D osteotomy surgery merely cuts & shifts the bone to address the cosmetic bump, Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ corrects the entire bone in 3D and secures the unstable foundation to get you back on your feet quickly in a walking boot.3,4 The Lapiplasty® Procedure has also shown low recurrence; 97% and 99% maintain 3D correction in 13 and 17 months respectively.3,5
Being able to walk in a surgical boot, as opposed to being completely non-weight bearing (in a cast with scooter or crutches) for 6-8 weeks, means that you will be getting back to a better quality of life faster; may return to most occupations more quickly; and will be less inconvenienced by bunion surgery.
Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction allows you to walk within days of surgery. Patients can return to most occupations within days to a couple of weeks, wearing a surgical boot. Within six weeks, you can expect to be walking in comfortable shoes such as tennis shoes, however, you should not plan on any high-impact activities for 3-4 months. Short shopping trips and leisurely strolls are examples of the types of activities that should be fine at this point. Around the 4-month mark post-op, you should be able to return to most activities and most shoe wear.
