Personalized Guides

Virtual Planning Meets Clinical Results

Zimmer Biomet’s Personalized Guide Systems provide interactive, 3D preoperative planning software and intraoperative guides that assist surgeons in the precise positioning of knee implants.

  • Patient imaging is used to generate a 3D virtual model for an unobstructed view of critical anatomic landmarks.
  • Interactive, 3D virtual surgeon planning enhances visualization of patient anatomy and implant position.
  • Virtual planning attributes are embodied in patient specific, 3D printed guides.
  • The use of interactive planning and patient specific guides streamline the surgical workflow.
  • Technology is a significant driver for patients to undergo total joint replacement surgery.1
  • Studies have demonstrated better accuracy and clinical outcomes through the use of Patient Specific Guides.2-6

Our Patient Specific Guide offerings are compatible with a broad range of Zimmer Biomet Knee Implants and multiple imaging modalities. Talk to your Zimmer Biomet Representative, or visit our Personalized Solutions Portal to learn more.
