3D printed models ensure success for robot-guided spinal surgery

Using a 3D printed model, French surgeons have performed the world’s first robot guided minimally invasive surgery on a scoliosis-affected child’s spine. Dr. François Deroussen, Prof. Richard Gouron, and Dr. Michel Lefranc together with anaesthetists from Amiens-Picardie University Hospital performed the operation with the help of Med Tech’s ROSA robot to align and guide the the surgeons. To prepare the procedure, and be as accurate as possible, the surgeons trained for the surgery on a 3D printed model of the patient. Using this model, the surgeons were able to perfect the timing of the surgery, and procedural practice for […]
