UAE’s first 3D-printed knee replacements

Posted on Updated on

UAE’s first 3D-printed knee replacements. According to Dr. Matthias Honl, he has been using the technology since 2008 in Austria and a consultant orthopedic surgeon and head of the Joint Replacement Unit at Burjeel Hospital for Advanced Surgery, Dubai, “The procedure is simple and makes use of a CT scan to size up the patient’s knee before the implant is even manufactured. It then prints a wax mold of the implant based on the dimensions of the patient’s knee, which is used as a model for the implant itself. I am happy that the technology found its way to be available for our patients in the Gulf region.
Both patients complained of extreme pain. After assessing their condition, we decided to have customized knees for each of them, using 3D technology”.
