    3D Printed Surgical Implants For Charcot Foot Surgery

     

    Today with advances in technology we have the ability to perform surgical corrections of deformities like never in the past. With the advent of 3-D custom printed implants we can now correct deformities of the foot and ankle with accurate precision. Many deformities of the foot and ankle do not have the proper implants to correct the deformities because of the unusual nature of these issues. Particularly Charcot foot and ankle deformities. When performing surgical correction of the charcot foot the surgeon must be prepared in the operating room with many backup hardware fixation methods as the Charcot deformity can be very challenging to treat.

    Why 3-D implants for the foot?

    Now with the advent of 3-D printing of surgical implants I can accurately plan out for an exact correction of the deformity and perform the surgery without any complications. As my practice focuses on limb salvage and charcot foot correction I have significant experience in all types of hardware for foot and ankle fixation. I have performed as to date the only 4 Web 3-D custom printed implants in San Diego California. First the patient is seen in the office and evaluated to see if they are candidates for the surgery. many times the patient will come to my office and be told by multiple surgeons that they need their foot amputated and that Dr Wrotslavsky specializes in amputation prevention. Next a CT scan is ordered and we create 3-D cad images to recreate the deformity digitally. Once that is done I have a special web based meeting with designers of the implant and we plan out the design . After that the implant is created and shipped for individual use. The future of surgery is here today with custom printed implants. Do not settle for an amputation come in today to see if you are a candidate for a custom 3-D printed implant.
