Orthopedic surgery is one of the main surgical specializations to benefit from Digital Planning and Patient-Specific Devices. We supply Virtual Surgery, Anatomical Models, Surgical Guides and Custom Implants.
Digital planning and Virtual Surgery of complex cases
Surgical Guides for osteotomies including wedge-osteotomies and placement of implants
Anatomical Models in bone-like material for simulation
These devices are used in complex upper, lower & revision reconstructions surgery.
Requires extreme precision for accurate resections, meaning that patient-specific devices are an essential part of the procedure – ideal for orthopedic oncology cases
Our engineers combine multiple scan modalities (CT, MRI, PET) to create highly accurate Virtual Surgical plans.
Patient-specific Anatomical Models are useful for the visualization of soft tissue & osteosarcomas, one of our focused specializations.
Some of our key clients include the Nuffield Orthopedic Centre NHS in Oxford and the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital NHS in Stanmore, London
Surgeons use both Digital and Physical Anatomical Models when planning complex cardiac surgery. Providing accurate 3D visualizations of a hearts can mean the difference between choosing a minimally invasive procedure or open surgery. Virtual Surgery can also be useful, especially for device sizing.
The Models are of particular interest to pediatric surgeons and cardiologists when dealing with congenital heart defects, 3D LifePrints has worked for many years with the team at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool. The devices are also increasingly used for adult congenital cases and progressive heart disease.
Pediatric surgery includes some of the most challenging problems for surgeons to overcome. The patient’s anatomy is generally smaller and can be more variable due to congenital conditions.
Personalised Surgery can make a huge difference to the success rate of these complex cases where a successful outcome can change the entire path of a patient’s life.
