When your feet hurt the entire quality of your life is disrupted. The average person takes approximately 10,000 steps per day, which can add up to more than 3 million steps per year. Each step can place 2-3 times the force of your body weight on your feet. You rely on your feet and ankles, so it's important to keep them healthy and pain-free. If you have a foot or ankle problem, make an appointment with a foot and ankle specialist like Ryan Flanigan, MD at Excela Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine.

Are Bunions Limiting Your Activities and Lifestyle?
Bunions can be very painful. With each step, your entire body weight rests on that bunion. Ouch! A common misconception about a bunion is that it is an overgrowth of bone that can simply be "shaved off". In reality, bunions are complex deformities caused by an unstable joint.
Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction
Relief is here. Now, there's a new, patented treatment for bunion correction – Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction. Dr. Ryan Flanigan at Excela Health 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. Advanced fixation technology is used to secure the correction in place, allowing patients to walk within days of surgery.1
How It Works
See why Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction™ differs from traditional 2D surgery.
Why Was Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction Developed?
For 87% of people with bunions, traditional surgery has failed to get to the true source of the problem – a 3-dimensional deformity caused by an unstable joint.2 This is why many people who have had traditional surgery have had their bunions return.3 In fact, 1 in 3 patients have been left dissatisfied with their surgical outcome in the past and up to 70% of those treated have had their bunion return.4
