This week, Axial3D is exhibiting at the 26th Annual Tampa Shoulder Course, taking place January 30 – February 1, 2020, in Tampa, Florida.
The Axial3D team will be on hand to showcase how our patient-specific 3D anatomical models can add value in the clinical setting. Axial3D is helping to transform surgery by providing previously unavailable insights to clinicians for preoperative planning across the world. Axial3D achieves this by creating highly accurate 3D printed models of specific parts of the patient’s own anatomy, that allow clinicians to better prepare for surgery. This results in better clinical outcomes for patients, significantly reduced planning and operating time (and costs) for the surgery and patients who are much better informed about their condition and the proposed surgery.
Surgeons working with Axial3D have reported increased levels of patient understanding, better intra-team communication, and positive patient outcomes when using a 3D printed anatomical model in planning for surgery. “Being able to utilize a 3D model and hold it in your hands prior to surgical intervention is very insightful for the patient – it helps them understand surgical interventional risks and benefits,” says Matthew Lawson, MD, a neurosurgeon and Stroke Medical Director at Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare. “3D models have been shown to increase patient consent rates and aid in patient understanding of the planned procedure.”
The 26th Annual Tampa Shoulder Course, organized by the Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) aims to provide orthopaedic surgeons with advanced and comprehensive training for the diagnosis and treatment of various shoulder and elbow conditions including conservative care, arthroplasty, arthroscopy, and fracture management. The interactive course format includes a diverse combination of lectures, hands-on workshops, live surgeries, debates, case presentations and panel discussions. Furthermore, the Pre- Course Bioskills Training will provide attendees the opportunity to observe step- by-step surgical demonstrations, as well as improve upon their surgical skills through hands-on lab training for aTSA and rTSA.
Be sure to visit Axial3D at the course this week to find out how we can help you deliver enhanced patient insights, improved patient outcomes, and faster surgery procedures.
