Onkos Surgical Supports Difficult Tumor Case with 3D Printed Medical Model

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 23, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Onkos Surgical, a dedicated surgical oncology company founded to bring innovation, advocacy and passion to the surgical oncology marketplace, supported a difficult chondrosarcoma case with the use of a 3D printed medical model.

3D Printed Medical Model

Dr. Francis Patterson, Attending Musculoskeletal Oncology Physician and Assistant Professor at University Hospital in Newark, NJ was preparing for an upcoming difficult tumor surgery when an Onkos Surgical representative asked him if seeing the tumor in 3D would help.

"I was not sure how truly helpful the model would be. However, several times throughout the surgery I referred back to the model. Visualization can be challenging when resecting a tumor in the pelvis. The model was a useful tool for intraoperative planning." Dr. Patterson said following the surgery.  

The patient's CT scan and imaging technology was used to identify the tumor and surrounding bone and tissues. In just a few days, a replica of the tumor and bone was manufactured for Onkos Surgical by 3D Systems and shipped to Dr. Patterson for the upcoming surgery.

"It is truly amazing how the advent of 3D printing technology has influenced healthcare. Personalized medicine is going to continue to grow and surgical oncology patients will benefit immensely from the innovation and customization that 3D printing technology enables," said Onkos Surgical Co-founder and CEO, Patrick Treacy. "We are thrilled to be able to help surgeons and patients in any way we can."
