3D Printing is now available on the front lines of healthcare at UCSF to enhance your surgical planning, education and prototyping of novel concepts.  Precision Anatomic Models* can enhance your decision-making in establishing care plans, obtaining informed patient consent, selecting surgical approach and optimal implants, and team or trainee preparation. 

Precsion Anatomic Models*

  Optimize:

  • Surgical Planning

  • Education 

  • Patient Engagement

  • Prototyping

WELCOME TO THE REVOLUTION

3DPrinting in Healthcare at UCSF

EDGE LABS at UCSF

  • Established in the UCSF Department of Orthopaedic Surgery to accelerate development and evaluation of innovative methodologies and materials in health care.

  • Edge Labs initiatives - driven by stakeholders on the front lines of healthcare including providers, patients, trainees, innovators and researchers.

  • Provide an end to end solution for rapid 3 D Printing of "Precision Anatomic Models" for clinical decision making and surgical planning. 

  • Provide models for education, prototyping for innovation and research.

  • EDGE road map for extends well beyond simulation Watch this site for more details of innovative clinical applications.

3DP in HEALTHCARE

3DPrinting in Healthcare ranges from printing prototypes, anatomic models for surgical planning, educational models, mechanical testing, orthotics and prosthetics, surgical guides, implants and bioprinting. 

PRECISION ANATOMIC MODELS  (PAMs)*

 

The term "Precision Anatomic Models" was coined by our team to describe real-sized, exact replicas of individual patient anatomy, derived from high resolution clinically obtained DICOM images. 

 Coming soon - examples of PAMs and Case Studies of clinical use cases will be featured here.

ORDER A  MODEL FOR YOUR NEXT CASE 

Do you have an upcoming case? Would you like to show your patient their own anatomy, plan your osteotomies, pre-select and even contour the instrumentation and prepare your team and trainees? Doing these steps preoperatively has shown to decrease OR time and use of intraoperative imaging.
