Through a revolutionary procedure that corrects instability in your foot, the Midwest Bunion Center can fix your bunions right the first time and keep them from coming back in the future.

Traditional bunion surgery is ineffective. Up to 70 percent of patients treated with a “shave” or “cut-and-shift” approach have their bunions recur over time1. This treatment can also keep you off your feet for months

If you're seeking relief from painful bunions, The Foot and Ankle Center of Iowa's Midwest Bunion Center has a proven record of patient experience and satisfaction. Through a combined 40 years of practice, doctors Paul and Mindi Dayton have successfully provided thousands of treatments and procedures for patients with foot and ankle disorders.

Bunion Surgery has Evolved

Experience Permanent Relief from Bunion Pain

With a 95-percent success rate, the Lapiplasty   3D Bunion Correction   procedure allows you to Fix It Right The First Time    .

From presenting their award-winning research around the country to literally writing the book on evidence-based bunion surgery, doctors Paul and Mindi Dayton have proven to be the authority in the field of transformative bunion treatment.

Dr. Paul Dayton has helped pioneer a breakthrough way to fix bunions—Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion CorrectionTM. With a 95-percent success rate, the procedure allows you to Fix It Right The First TimeTMThis patented method goes beyond removing the “bump.” It corrects the root problem by addressing your bunion in three dimensions. 

At the Midwest Bunion Center, doctors Paul and Mindi Dayton know bunions. They’ve researched them since 2009, and have even been instrumental in changing bunion treatment in the U.S.

How Lapiplasty  3D Bunion Correction   Works

Traditional surgery often cuts the bone in half and shifts the top part over to reduce the appearance of the “bump.” That primarily addresses symptoms, not the root cause. This means bunions are significantly more likely to come back in some degree.

At the Midwest Bunion Center, we use specially designed instruments to naturally straighten your toe and remove the “bump”—and associated pain.

Bunion Deformity
An unstable foundation allows the metatarsal bone to drift out of 3D alignment, causing the visible “bump” on the inside of the foot.

Osteotomies
(Traditional Surgery)
“Osteotomies” target the cosmetic bump by cutting and shifting the bone in 2D, but do not address all 3 dimensions of the deformity or the unstable foundation.

Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Correction
This advanced procedure precisely corrects the 3D metatarsal alignment and secures the foundation, allowing you to walk within days of surgery4.

Not only will this remove your bunions and aching foot pain, but stabilizing your foot now will keep bunions from reoccurring in the future. With Lapiplasty®, you can say goodbye to bunion pain, swelling, soreness and limited activities—for good!

Traditional Approaches to Bunion Correction are Ineffective
For many people with bunions, traditional surgery has failed to treat the true source of the problem—a 3-dimensional deformity caused by an unstable joint.
