A podiatrist with the Jefferson City Medical Group is the first doctor in Missouri to use a "game-changing" procedure to correct bunions. Dr. J.P. McAleer has been using the lapiplastly correction procedure for about a year and is working to bring the procedure to other podiatrists throughout the state and country. Traditional bunion surgery has a 70 percent rate of re-occurrence, and McAleer said out of the 100 plus patients the group has treated, none of them have had re-occurring bunions.

McAleer has been traveling throughout Missouri and to other states to teach other doctors how to perform this surgery. He is one of the first doctors in the United States to adopt lapiplasty. He said one of the benefits of the procedure is that it is reproducible, whereas traditional bunion correction varies case-to-case.
