About the Sponsor:
3D Systems offers healthcare-centric 3D printing and 3D visualization technology. The company’s surgical tools include accurate 3D printed anatomical models, advanced virtual reality simulators, direct metal printing for implants and instrumentation, VSP® (Virtual Surgical Planning) and personalized 3D printed surgical guides. 3D Systems is developing true patient-specific healthcare solutions, one by one or at scale, designed to change the future of personalized medicine.
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. VSP is exclusively offered though Stryker.
