PSI uses advanced imaging to generate one-time-use instruments specific to each patient. An MRI/CT scan is taken of the patient’s leg. A three dimensional bone model of the patient's knee is created based on the CT/MRI images. Dr Arora will then plan your surgery on this 3D image regarding overall alignment, femoral and tibial bone cuts and size of the implant needed. The detailed plan is then sent to the implant manufacturing unit based in USA and an engineer uses the data to fabricates a corresponding set of disposable cutting blocks or pin guides designed to help the surgeon position and align the implant during surgery. These jigs are then shipped to us for use during surgery.
These patient-specific surgical instruments are custom made for the precise alignment of patient’s knee. There are several distinct advantages of this technology.
