Custom Surgical Tools
Using patient specific cutting guides and other custom surgical tools can save time and money for patients and facilities alike. According to a study from Academic Radiology, the use of surgical cutting guides in orthopedic surgeries can save 23 minutes per case. Depending on how much a facility charges per minute, these tools could potentially save thousands of dollars!
Aside from monetary savings, there are many technical advantages these tools can provide. Using a Med Dimensions custom hip arthroplasty cutting guide can make it easier to replicate good cuts and measurements, allowing a surgeon to achieve better and more predictable outcomes in the operating room. Furthermore, a custom cutting guide can help steer a surgeon away from important structures in a certain area, specifically nerves and arteries near a joint space.
