Lapiplasty: A Revolutionary Solution to Bunion Pain

Providing exceptional podiatric care goes beyond determining an accurate diagnosis and recommending treatment; giving patients access to cutting-edge, revolutionary treatment options is also extremely important to us.

That’s why we are proud to be the first practice in The Woodlands to offer the Lapiplasty 3D Bunion Correction procedure for our patients! In fact, we have received special recognition by Treace Medical Concepts, the developer of the procedure, as one of the most experienced practices in the country.

Lapiplasty is the most advanced treatment option available for bunion correction today. This procedure uses state-of-the-art instrumentation and an innovative technique to provide a three-dimensional solution to repair misaligned joints more effectively (and permanently!) than traditional bunion surgeries. This allows for a much shorter recovery period, less pain, and a decreased chance of the condition recurring in the future.

“Dr Pignetti is an awesome doctor. He is very personable and explained everything he was doing. I’ve had several ingrown toenails before and always dreaded the visit. This time, I barely felt the shot. The wait was less than 5 minutes. Office staff professional and courteous. I highly recommend Dr Pignetti!”

“I had Lapiplasty surgery a couple of weeks ago. Dr. Pignetti explained everything from A-Z and left no stone unturned. He is very knowledgeable and I am very pleased with my results thus far. My healing process is going just as he explained, nearly textbook. His office staff is also pleasant, personable and professional. I definitely will have lapiplasty on my other foot with him in the future.
