Why is 3D-printing so popular? What material is used in orthopedics?​

2022-03-23T17:27:16+00:00

Why is 3D-printing so popular right now? What are the pros? 3D-printing opens a whole world of creativity. This process opens conventional constraints on design. With 3D-printing, also known as additive manufacturing, printing objects with complex geometries is now possible. In other words, it is easier now than ever to make a shape that [...]

What is 3D-printing? 3D-printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is the future of spinal implants. This process can be used to complement traditional machinery or alone. With whatever material is being used, a 3D-printer will fuse the material one part at a time. This part is different from traditional manufacturing because the printer will [...]

3D-printed implants have technology that help patients recover from surgery more efficiently. ​

2022-03-23T16:11:33+00:00

Matthew McDonnell, MD, of University Orthopedic Associates recently told Becker Spine Review, “3D printing has several emerging uses in the field of spine surgery. Spinal implant companies are already 3D printing titanium metal cages. The 3D printing process allows them to build implants with complex geometries and porous surfaces that facilitate quicker and improved [...]

Becker Spine Review recently released 15 different surgeons’ predictions regarding the future of 3D printing in orthopedics. According to Alan Dang, MD, of University of California San Francisco Medical Center: “On the implant side, which is more broadly applicable, 3D-printed implants will mature in the same way traditionally manufactured implants did. Most 3D implants [...]

Research in spine journal proves that a single spinal fusion surgery is more effective than alternative surgeries for curve correction in children. ​

2022-03-22T21:27:36+00:00

As reported in Spine Deformity, G. Ying Li and a team of researchers analyzed surgical outcomes of 59 preadolescents with early-onset neuromuscular scoliosis treated with spinal fusion surgery. 43 out of 59 of these patients had previously undergone growth-friendly surgeries. The study’s authors found that the single spinal fusion surgery had set the patients up for [...]

Chris Carson, NFL quarterback, underwent successful ACDF surgery.​

2022-04-12T15:49:31+00:00

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Chris Carson, just underwent successful neck surgery. Specifically, he underwent cervical fusion surgery in late 2021. Carson hopes to get back to playing this year for the 2022-2023 season. Cervical fusion surgery can also be known as Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF). ACDF surgery involves removing a damaged disc [...]

What is pseudoarthrosis? How do smoking habits affect back and spine surgery success?

2022-03-22T21:26:32+00:00

Pseudoarthrosis describes what happens when a spinal fusion is unsuccessful. Being a smoker dramatically increases your risk of pseudoarthrosis. Some spine surgeons will not even operate on smokers (not taking into account those cases in which one’s life would be in danger without this surgery). Smoking can decrease the rate of fusion by a [...]
