Personalised Surgical Process for Joint Replacements

Parc Tauli University Hospital, Barcelona

Working towards the personalisation of joint replacement, shifting from a ‘best fit’ scenario to tailor-made joints for each patient

It is essential for the surgical outcome that the surgeon has all the possible options at their disposal in order to select the best possible fit for the patient during the operation.

THE CHALLENGE

Personalised medicine is becoming more common in clinical practice and has been proven to provide both patients and physicians with considerable benefits. This includes increased satisfaction, as well as the possibility of enhancing the efficiency of the health system, reducing costs and avoiding post-operative complications.

In 2019, 595 joint replacements were performed in Parc Tauli University Hospital, with 120,000 in Spain and more than 3 million across Europe. Moreover, as the general population ages, the number of joint replacements is expected to increase every year.

We are, therefore, seeking to find an innovative solution to the personalisation of joint replacement, shifting from a ‘best fit’ scenario to tailor-made joints for each patient.

THE REQUIREMENT

Parc Tauli University Hospital has a requirement, therefore, for personalised surgical process for joint replacements that incorporate:

  • The design and on-demand manufacture of tailor-made joint replacements and patient specific instrumentation
  • Pre-operative precision measurement incorporating whole body assessment to optimise the personalised biomechanical performance
  • The monitoring and full traceability of both the manufacturing and surgical process
