3D Printing & Customized Implants
Our motto is:
“Make the implant fit the patient rather than force the patient fit the implant”
By combining advanced 3D imaging technology with the latest manufacturing capabilities, we are capable to customize each and every implant to the patient’s unique size and shape.
Following is the usual process:
Once the patient’s CT (Computed Tomography) scan or MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) films are sent to us, our engineers convert these images into 3D.
Bone model is printed upon request. This initial model is fully biocompatible, autoclavable, as well as fire resistant up to 360°F (180°C)
The surgeon informs us what type of an implant he/she would like to have for that specific case.
Final bone model before the actual production of the implant is sent to the surgeon.
Following the confirmation of the surgeon, the implant is prepared between 4 to 6 days depending on the size and complexity of the project.
All implants are printed from biocompatible polyethylene and titanium (Ti64) under strict standards of FDA, CE and ISO 13485.
Step 1: The patient’s MRI film is converted into 3D.
Step 2: The bone model is printed.
Step 3: The implant model is printed.
Step 4: Depending on the preference of the surgeon, it can be used with or without bone cement.
FINAL PRODUCT: CUSTOM MADE ACETEBULAR REVISION IMPLANT
