3D bunion surgery now available at Seaside Surgery Center
Patented procedure fixes toe at the root of the problem

Foot and ankle specialist Dr. Evgeny Krynetskiy, an orthopedic surgeon-partner at Seaside Surgery Center, recently performed the first LAPIPLASTY
®  bunion surgery at the outpatient joint replacement center. "LAPIPLASTY® is the first and only procedure specifically developed to correct all 3 dimensions of a bunion deformity, at the root of the problem. Rather than cutting and shifting the metatarsal bone over as traditional 2D surgery does, LAPIPLASTY® uses advanced instrumentation to precisely reposition the entire misaligned bone back into normal 3D alignment," explained Krynetskiy. The procedure, developed by Treace Medical Concepts, Inc., secures the metatarsal bone at its base with patented titanium plate technology.
Benefits to the patient include a faster recovery. Most patients can put their full weight on the foot anywhere from a few hours to a few days after surgery. There is no need for a cast, the surgery site is simply bandaged, and the foot is placed in a boot. Most patients will be able to wear fashionable shoes again. Active patients can expect to return to playing sports when the bones have healed, approximately four months post-op.
