Personalized implants based on your unique anatomy through computer modeling

At Animas Orthopedic Associates , surgeons use Patient-Specific Instrumentation (PSI) to generate advanced imaging of your knee or hip. Usually joint replacements are sized and measured during the operation. The bone cuts are made with reference to the inside and outside of the patient's bones. Using the Visionaire System or Arthrex VIP, preoperative MRI scans and CT scans are used to create a virtual 3-D model of the patient's joint. From this model, your orthopedic surgeon will generate individualized cutting blocks aimed to make the procedure of total joint replacement more accurate and efficient.
