Will I experience pain during or after Lapiplasty® surgery?

Our experienced team at Dovetail Orthopedics takes great care to ensure your comfort throughout the surgical process. While some discomfort is expected after the procedure, we employ various techniques to manage pain effectively. Our team will provide you with appropriate pain medications and offer guidance on post-operative pain management strategies.

Are the results of Lapiplasty® permanent?

Yes, the results of Lapiplasty® are designed to be permanent. This procedure addresses the underlying cause of the bunion by correcting the misaligned joint in three dimensions and securing it with titanium plates. By stabilizing the joint, Lapiplasty® significantly reduces the risk of bunion recurrence, providing lasting results.

Am I a suitable candidate for Lapiplasty® bunion surgery at Dovetail Orthopedics if I have had a previous bunion surgery that was unsuccessful?

Yes, if you have had a previous bunion surgery that did not effectively address the underlying cause or resulted in recurrence, you may still be a suitable candidate for Lapiplasty®. Our skilled orthopedic specialists will evaluate your individual case and determine the most appropriate treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. Lapiplasty® offers a comprehensive 3D correction, making it an effective solution for recurrent bunions.

Please note that it’s always best to consult with the healthcare professionals at Dovetail Orthopedics for personalized advice and information specific to your situation.
