Meaningful Innovations in Personalized Care: Endoscopic, Computer-Guided Repair of the Orbital Floor

About this webinar

The Mimics Innovation Awards celebrate the most meaningful innovations in personalized care and open our minds to new and previously unimaginable possibilities. This year’s global winner, Dr. Alessandro Tel, and the team directed by Prof. Robiony at the University Hospital of Udine, Department of Maxillo Facial Surgery, developed an endoscopic procedure for the reconstruction of internal orbital floor fractures. Using this approach, they achieved several advantages, including avoidance of external scars, anatomically correct reconstruction of the orbital floor, resolution of enophthalmos and diplopia, minimal discomfort for the patient, and substantial reduction of costs.   

With this research on the impact of computer-aided surgery (CAS) on the overall accuracy of reconstruction to achieve the triple objective of restoring anatomy, volume, and function, they have taken innovative steps in an inspiring new approach to personalized care.
