A.D.A.M will provide an on-demand, personalized implant manufacturing infrastructure with related services that can be provided remotely or at a facility via a full scope of capabilities designed to make this process more efficient for both patients and providers alike.
The use of 3D printing in Orthopedic surgery has been a major development that allows for an easier and quicker treatment time when compared with traditional methods. The first approval from FDA came about because this technology allowed doctors to replace metal crowns, which were previously used on teeth as replacements due largely to their durability but also sometimes resulted in too much wear over the years down the line before replacement is needed again--a process taking hours or days depending on how complex your condition may be.
This technology has also been used in the orthopedic field to create trabecular metal (TBM) scaffolds used as an alternative to autologous bone grafts. TBM scaffolds are still relatively new, but they have shown great promise in helping patients heal from orthopedic injuries and disorders.
Some of the most Common Procedures
The list of orthopedic surgeries is extensive, and each one addresses a different part or aspect in the body. While they're still invasive procedures with the potential for complications, many people consider these normal activities given how routine it has become over time.
Some of the most common procedures include:
- Knee Replacement Surgery
- ACL Surgery
- Hip Replacement Surgery
- Shoulder Replacement Surgery
- Joint Fusions
- Shoulder Arthroscopy
- Knee Arthroscopy
The next generation of orthopedic implants will be made with biocompatible materials that are patient-specific and can be printed on demand. This will allow for better outcomes, shorter surgery times, and reduced implant costs.
A.D.A.M is Moving Ortho Implants into the Future
3D printing is an incredible technology that has revolutionized our lives, work, and play. It's also improved implants for those who need prosthetics or orthopedic implants. A.D.A.M focuses on providing doctors with high-quality medical-grade plastic materials so their patients can get back up again quickly after surgery without having any negative effect long term health-wise due to its biodegradable properties, unlike other alternatives out there, such as polysulfone, which causes inflammation and at worst leaves you needing another operation because it isn't functioning the way it should.
This innovation in orthopedic implants is just one way that A.D.A.M is moving ortho implants into the future. To learn more about our company and what we do, visit our website or contact us today. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
