What is Med Dimensions?
Our purpose is helping surgeons and their patients alike minimize their time in the Operating Room by creating and collaborating for high-quality, precise, and patient specific 3D solutions. By committing ourselves to constant innovation, research and development, Med Dimensions seeks to lead veterinary medical 3D modeling.
The Next Dimension in Medical Imaging.
What Drives Us
Since the inception of the American Veterinary Medical Association in 1863, animal clinical practice has advanced at a remarkable rate. Not only has the planet seen generally healthier livestock and domestic animals, but also more treatable pathology when these animals get sick. In the past 30 years the United States has seen the opening of thousands of veterinary practices, utilizing improvements in technology to make many old problems obsolete. Anesthesia, imaging, and sterile processing have improved the lives of millions of animals worldwide.
Even with these incredible advancements in technology, there are plenty of issues that aren’t quite solved. In veterinary orthopedics, even with new imaging processes, a surgeon still does not know what they’re going to see after they make incision. This can lead to longer time in the operating room, higher doses of anesthesia, and a higher cost to the owner of the animal. This is where Med Dimensions comes in!
Recognizing this flaw in surgical preparation and planning, the Med Dimensions team created a solution focused to minimize OR time and cost passed on to animal owners. Since 1982, pet ownership has risen from 88 million families to 187 million families. This means that even though surgeons are seeing common pathology more often, they are also seeing a higher frequency of unique pathology in practice. Our three-dimensional model of a patient specific CT scan is accurate to 10 microns, taking the uncertainty out of both common and uncommon orthopedic procedures for a surgeon. We also produce surgical cutting guides so a surgeon can further perfect their surgical plan, making their technique more precise.
Med Dimensions is founded on one simple principle: taking uncertainty out of surgery. We believe no patient should be denied access to technologies that improve the surgical experience. We continue to work tirelessly to develop a system which gives any surgeon access to high quality, patient specific models and tools to ensure a faster and safer procedure. By combining our industry expertise with the efficiency of rapid manufacturing technologies, we are proud to offer our customers a cost effective and accuracy driven service. We’ve made it our mission to tailor our services to as diverse a range of customers as possible, human and animal, in order to have an extensive impact.
