Utilizing advanced computerized technology, with preoperative and intra operative navigation, Dr. Matanky has performed over 1000 “patient specific” total knee or total shoulder implants. This advanced procedure begins with an MRI or CT three-dimensional analysis of each patient’s joint problems or deformities. This data is then analyzed, identifying each individual’s abnormalities. Next, advanced 3-dimensional printers are used to custom mold a patient specific guide which is then used intraoperatively to accurately and precisely aid in the positioning of a knee or shoulder total joint implant.
