VSP Surgical Planning Solutions Portfolio
Craniomaxillofacial (CMF) Solutions
3D Systems' VSP surgical planning solutions for CMF applications received FDA clearance as a service-based approach to personalized surgery over 10 years ago. Combining expertise in medical imaging, surgical simulation, and 3D printing, surgeons bring their clinical knowledge and desired surgical plan to an online web meeting with a 3D Systems biomedical engineer to simulate and plan the surgical procedure. The outcome is a digital plan that is transferred to the operating room via accurate, 3D-printed, patient-specific models and instrumentation.
3D Systems' VSP Orthopaedics offering is a personalized healthcare solution developed for orthopaedic oncology cases. VSP surgical planning solutions provide surgeons with the opportunity to plan surgeries prior to entering the operating room. Based on the surgical plan, patient-matched surgical instruments are designed, 3D printed, and sterilized for use during surgery.
For foot and ankle applications, 3D Systems works with medical device companies to develop VSP surgical planning solutions to compliment off-the-shelf implants. Surgeons quickly see the benefits of patient-matched instruments because they help enable more precise implant placement and reduce time in the OR.
Leveraging decades of experience, we provide industry-leading surgical planning, implants, instrumentation, and medical education solutions to help medical device manufacturers and healthcare providers accelerate innovation, and ultimately, transform healthcare. Since each patient's anatomy is different, patient-specific anatomic models provide an opportunity to visualize and plan surgeries prior to entering the operating room. In addition, anatomic models can be used to educate patients and their families on an upcoming procedure.

“VSP planning sessions are invaluable to understanding the patient anatomy and details. I was able to explore several options for my patient with the VSP engineer before choosing the one I felt was best to implement.”—Deepak Krishnan, DDS, FACS
