LimaCorporate opened the first provider-based design and 3D printing facility for custom complex joint replacement. Known as the ProMade PoC (Point of Care) Center, the FDA-regulated commercial facility is located at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) main campus in New York City. The Center will create faster and more accessible care for U.S. patients requiring personalized solutions for their orthopedic conditions.
HSS patients will be scanned onsite, and their custom implant will be designed and fabricated in the onsite center using LimaCorporate's Trabecular Titanium technology. This design and manufacturing service will also be accessible to patients from other U.S. hospitals.
HSS and LimaCorporate have worked together on patient-specific custom solutions since 2016. Now, under one roof, increased daily interactions between LimaCorporate's ProMade engineers and HSS surgeons and engineers will enable both to draw on their collective intelligence and leverage combined strengths to advance solutions to solve some of the world's most complex orthopedic cases.
"The Promade PoC Center opening marks the next stage of realizing our ultimate goal: to restore the emotion of motion, by empowering surgeons to improve patient outcomes from joint replacement surgery," said LimaCorporate CEO Luigi Ferrari. "We are no stranger to challenging the status quo and, through this world-leading partnership, will continue to innovate our industry-leading solutions to answer real patient needs. We look forward to sharing our expertise with HSS and furthering our commitment to advancing patient-centric care."
