Onkos Surgical Launches My3D Personalized Surgery Platform -

Onkos Surgical launched the My3D™ Personalized Solutions platform, powered by 3D Systems' VSP® (Virtual Surgical Planning) Orthopaedics. The companies partnered in 2018 on a four-year agreement to develop patient-specific tools for use in tumor reconstruction in the pelvis and long bones. This is their first product released. VSP Orthopaedics enables 3D visualization of a patient's anatomy to develop a highly personalized surgical plan, prior to surgery. Using a patient's own CT imaging to drive digital planning avoids the need for costly navigation or robots. My3D allows the surgeon to plan a tumor resection with a high level of precision that may preserve native joint function, instead of replacing the entire joint. The process begins with collaboration. After a preoperative online planning session between 3D Systems' biomedical engineers and the surgeon, patient-specific models, surgical tools and resection instruments are designed and 3D-printed for use within the sterile field. In clinical applications where VSP has been used, the tools have been shown to improve surgical accuracy and outcomes, thus saving time in the O.R. to the benefit both surgeon and patient.
