Virtual Surgical Planning (VSP®) is quickly becoming a standard of care for Orthognathic Surgery. “A Team Approach” is what Kevin L Reick, DDS, MD, FACS, Nebraska Oral and Facial Surgery, describes in this video. Our VSP service utilizes medical image data to accurately plan surgery in a computer environment, determine the need for customized 3D printed surgical tools and guides, and then transfer that knowledge and those surgical tools to the operating room. The talented group of Biomedical Engineers at 3D Systems works directly with the surgeon to create a pre-surgical plan resulting in 3D printed surgical splints, which are then used during the patient’s surgery to assist the surgeon in achieving an accurate bite.
