Surgical Planning

Available by consultation through the Director of Services.
Surgical planning is the ability to use 3D digital models of a patient to develop a treatment plan and is conducive to a team approach to treatment. Generally used in reconstruction techniques, models allow for movement of bone and soft tissue to a desired location and evaluated for feasibility prior to actual surgical intervention. Positioning guides, cutting guides, drill guides, and custom implants can be fabricated from these plans to aid in the actual surgical treatment to reach the desired goals. These techniques have proven to decrease actual operating time and improve outcomes.
