Pre-operative Planning with Digital X-Rays Is the Future - Now!

Mr. Barker describes why orthopedic pre-operative planning matters and how it helps him achieve his surgical goals. He plans all of his hip joint replacement cases with Materialise OrthoView, both standard and complex, and follows the Exeter 7 step pre-operative planning method. In the webinar you will learn what Mr. Barker considers to be the key measurements for achieving a successful surgical outcome and restoring full activity to his patients. These include stem offset and leg length discrepancy, known to be the most common cause of litigation in orthopedic surgery. Mr Barker identifies the benefits of knowing these measurements before going into surgery and describes how to measure them with a pre-operative planning solution.
