Step 4: We are manufacturing your knee

Using the 3D model generated from your CT scan, we are manufacturing your knee to fit your unique anatomy.

At our state-of-the-art facility, we use the latest in manufacturing and 3D printing technology to create an implant and surgical instrumentation just for you. Your customized instrumentation is created using a 3D printer where a robotic arm sweeps a layer of powdered material onto a tray. A laser then outlines each patient-specific shape, fusing the powdered material into a solid. The process is repeated many times, until the layers have built up and the final shape of the instruments is created.
