Patient Specific Instrumentation

Custom 3D printed bone models and guides have changed the way orthopedists perform complex surgery. The most common application is use of osteotomy and reduction guides to facilitate deformity correction with a high degree of accuracy. This accuracy has expanded the use of internal fixation over bulky external skeletal fixation, even for the most challenging of angular deformities. The Cartesian Medical team also has extensive experience in design and use of custom guides for arthroplasty, spinal surgery, fracture repair, and oncologic limb-sparing techniques.
