How Hospitals Can Benefit from Digital Orthopaedic Planning
1 min read
Preoperative planning and templating enable orthopaedic surgeons to prepare for joint replacement surgery, limit the risk of intraoperative complications, and improve patient communication. These advantages translate into direct benefits for the hospital as well, ranging from more efficient implant stock management to a significant reduction in complications and patient complaints.
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Dr. Ross Barker (United Kingdom), explains why the hospital benefits when he uses Materialise OrthoView to digitally plan orthopaedic cases.
