Why your surgical team needs 3D modeling

  • Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedics
  • Craniomaxillofacial
  • Cardiology
  • Traumatology

Complex cases relying on 2D images can lead to unnecessary, high costs and risks, with longer surgery times, higher revision rates and increased patient infections. Download the free infographic below to discover how 3D modeling can support your surgical team to enhance each stage of the patient's care and support improved outcomes.

Spine surgery

“Spinal procedures can be extremely complex and no two procedures are the same. Anatomical models help surgeons like myself in explaining the associated risks of a procedure, which is important for gaining informed consent especially when complications could put them at risk of paralysis.”

- Mr. Andrew Bowey, Consultant Spinal Surgeon, Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals

Orthopedic surgery

“It’s easy to use, efficient, and quick. The models Axial3D produces are very good, accurate and easy to use. The service is fairly seamless and efficient compared to other types of new where it can be an onerous, complicated, lengthy process. The model produced was very intuitive, very interactive and seamless which meant we could get things turned around quickly. I’ve been very impressed with how Axial3D can rapidly turn around complex requests,” Irwin said.

Pelvic surgery

“The model re-assured me that my Plan A fixation would work. We didn’t see a cost saving as the kit we use for this is on the shelf in our hospital. But if this kit is a loan kit – as it is in most hospitals – then this 3D model would have prevented waste and money.”

“Patients really benefit from being able to see and touch the problem that they’re going to have surgery for. Setting up the 3D printing service with axial3D was fast, easy and effortless on our part. We are excited about what the future of 3D printing will bring to our hospital.”

– Alex Alamri, Neurosurgery, The Royal London Hospital, Barts NHS Trust
