First Cases with Patient-Specific 3D-Printed Implants from LimaCorporate’s ProMade Center

LimaCorporate  and Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) announced a milestone in their collaboration. The first patient-specific solutions designed and produced at the ProMade Point of Care Center for Complex Orthopedic Solutions at HSS (ProMade PoC) were successfully used in two complex joint reconstruction surgeries (hip and shoulder).

The ProMade PoC Center offers the opportunity for enhanced collaboration between the design and manufacturing engineers and surgeons to develop patient-specific solutions before being 3D printed in the onsite facility. It reduces by weeks the time to surgery and has become a resource available not only to HSS physicians, but to providers and hospitals throughout the U.S.

The center, established through a long-standing strategic relationship between HSS and LimaCorporate, is an FDA-regulated commercial facility located at the HSS main campus in New York City. The aim of this first of its kind project is to provide faster and more accessible care for U.S. patients requiring personalized and complex joint replacement.
