VSP Orthognathics planning image with guides


Established by 3D Systems, VSP technology received FDA market clearance as a service based approach to personalized surgery, combining expertise in medical imaging, surgical simulation and 3D printing. The surgeon initiates the process, bringing 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, guides and templates.

As a pioneer in the personalized medicine space, 3D Systems has provided VSP or anatomical services in more than 120,000 cases. The Stryker Craniomaxillofacial business specializes in providing patient-specific options and innovative solutions that help drive efficiencies in surgical suites. The combination of Stryker’s specialized sales force with 3D Systems’ cutting-edge 3D printing and patient-specific solutions positions both companies to provide a superior level of service to healthcare professionals who use
these revolutionary products.
