About Medical Modeling

Medical Modeling was founded on the idea that medical imaging studies should not only be used for diagnosis but that they should drive clinical treatment. This principle has propelled development of world-leading surgical planning and clinical transfer tools, which guide how reconstructive surgery is done today. Having had the chance to work with many surgeons around the world on tens of thousands of patient cases has been an incredible privilege. This also gives us a unique perspective on surgical planning and common challenges faced by surgical teams every day. We’ve used that knowledge to further our product line into new and exciting areas, including VSP® (Virtual Surgical Planning) and creation of additively manufactured implant constructs.

Conjoined Twins

Over Medical Modeling’s history, it has played a role in helping surgical teams separate an amazing 25 different sets of conjoined twins. These cases have included craniopagus (joined at the head), ischiopagus (joined at the hip), pygopagus (joined at the hip/spine) and thoracopagus (joined at the chest). Geographically speaking, Medical Modeling has assisted teams of surgeons from our first case in Seattle, Washington to Dallas, New York and many places around the world, including Singapore, Australia, United Arab Emirates, Canada and others. Please let us know if you are a surgical team needing modeling assistance, as many of these services have been donated.

VSP® Microtia

Microtia, the underdevelopment of the external ear, occurs in roughly 1:10,000 births and is typically found unilaterally. Medical Modeling’s novel VSP® Microtia product helps surgeons reconstruct the ear with the patient’s own tissue (called autogenous reconstruction). The planning and templates for these cases give the surgeon better confidence in making the new ear look like the existing ear and facilitate efficiency in surgery.
