Better planning leads to better operations.
Osteotomies are traditionally prepared using X-ray images and then executed freehand. Even if you spend a considerable amount of time on planning, you can only undertake these osteotomies to a certain degree of accuracy if you go freehand - especially in complex deformities of the limb. This leads to a less predictable outcome.
Be prepared every time you go into the OR. Materialise Clinical Engineers will support you with 3D planning and custom surgical guides that lead to a more predictable outcome in bone deformities and resections of bone sarcoma.
Once mapped out, osteotomy guides are your last step in the execution of a successful operation. Based on 3D imagery of the patient’s actual anatomy, Materialise’s guides provide confidence when executing what you planned before the surgery.
