The Best Clinical Talent And Skills

3d Printed Spine Model Assisted Spine Surgery

Our current imaging technology and navigation software can create safe, efficient surgery plans based on the patient's imaging and algorithmic data from thousands of prior procedures for some common spine procedures, such as arthritis and degenerative disc-related procedures.

However, in complicated cases, such as spinal deformities, such as severe scoliosis, spinal tumours, patients who require spinal fusion, and traumatic spine injuries with multiple vertebrae fractures, the bone breakdown is so severe that surgical repair runs the risk of causing collateral damage to healthy nerves, muscles, and tissues. In these circumstances, spending time on the printing process is definitely worthwhile.

 About Image

With the use of the 3D replica, we can physically examine the patient's wounds to identify the best entrance places for tools, screws, and incisions to restore broken structures. Then, we use these instructions along with the patient's preoperative CT scan to develop a highly customised, computer-assisted surgical plan.

Advantages of printing 3D spines

The capacity to practise screw placement from numerous angles until we find the most precise trajectory is the major clinical advantage of 3D modelling. Anaesthesia time, surgical time, infection risk, and recuperation time are all reduced as a result of the additional visual preparation.

To better help patients understand exactly what was done and what they need to do to maintain their newly found spinal health, we develop before-and-after 3D models for particularly difficult instances. Even after surgery, some patients opt to take their printed spines with them.
