The Use of 3D-Printed Pelvic Models for Complex Acetabular and Femoral Reconstructions

About this webinar

Brian Haus, M.D., a Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon, talks about how he is using 3D-printed medical models to prepare for hip surgeries and how the use of these models give him new insights. During the webinar, he demonstrates two case examples and shows us how preoperative 3D scans helped him to plan using the Materialise Mimics software. When the analysis and planning were all done, he takes us through the process of printing the models and using them before and during surgery for these specific cases.
