What if they could create a custom jig to guide the surgery before entering the OR?  Thanks to the advancement in 3D computer modeling and 3D printing this is all possible, providing surgeons an innovative method to patient-specific care.

Join Materialise, and hear from two renowned surgeons who are utilizing 3D technology in their daily practice. Discover how the addition of 3D technology is changing their surgical approach and opening doors for more complex procedures.
