“3D Modeling to Improve Hip Arthroscopy Outcomes”
This study will pilot the use of 3D printed models of the hip, for use in pre-operative planning and patient communication to improve clinical outcomes and patient engagement. This method will be implemented in the setting of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), with the goal of identifying and measuring specific anatomical pathologies and impingement (range of motion) risks, to communicate a pre-operative plan to both the surgical team, and the patient.
3D Hip Model from Pre-operative CT scan
A printed 3D model will be created based off of the patient's standard of care preoperative CT scan.
