Artificial Intelligence based preoperative planning for TKA significantly improves current planning algorithms:
a surgeon validation study

Deborah Bohn

Adriaan Lambrechts
Sr. Research Engineer


Our AI based preoperative planning technology for TKA has already proven to reduce the number of corrections surgeons have to make by 50%. For our current study we had an experienced surgeon score preoperative plans, in terms of quality, on a range from one to five. Where a score of one indicates a totally unacceptable plan, while a score of five indicates a plan which does not need any changes. The surgeon scored for 30 TKA cases both an AI plan as well as the current default plan, while being blinded to the plan type. Our new AI generated preoperative plans scored twice as high as the current default plans provided to surgeons!  


“…the scripting module automates your workflow, saving a great deal of time, ensuring consistency across projects, and preventing mistakes in implementation…which has given me hours of my life back.”

“I plan all my cases…in OrthoView so the number of decisions I need to make intra-operatively are significantly reduced. OrthoView is extremely valuable…due to its accuracy in assessing the measurements…”
