AlgoSurg: The Future of Orthopedic Surgery Planning and Training

AlgoSurg: The Future of Orthopedic Surgery Planning and Training – Orthopedic surgery is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. Orthopedic surgeries can be complex and challenging, requiring precise planning, execution, and follow-up. However, current methods of surgery planning and training are often limited by the availability and quality of imaging modalities, the accuracy and cost of surgical instruments and implants, and the accessibility and effectiveness of surgical education.

AlgoSurg’s Products and Projects

AlgoSurg has developed and is working on several products and projects that demonstrate its vision and capabilities. Some of them are:

  • Tabplan3D: Tabplan3D is the world’s first web-based software where surgeons can plan orthopedic surgeries like complex deformity corrections, HTOs, DFOs, TKR and THR, in 3D view. The 3D bone model is created using either X-ray or CT and the current focus is on knee and hip anatomies. Future work will involve application of VR/AR technologies and inclusion of other anatomies.
  • X3DPSI: X3DPSI is XrayTo3D and CTto3D based automatic patient-specific instrument (PSI) design technology. The PSIs are 3D printed and used for accurate implant positioning in HTO, DFO, TKR or THR surgeries. X3DPSI is a very efficient and cost-effective solution because of its automation, time-saving and option to use plain X-rays as input. This technology is integrated with Tabplan3D’s 3D surgery planning of TKR and deformity corrections (HTO/DFO).
  • OpenSurgiSim: OpenSurgiSim was funded by Intuitive Foundation (foundation of Intuitive Surgicals), to build surgery training modules for orthopedic surgeons of low and middle income countries. It uses cloud-based technologies, 3D simulation and augmented reality. The goal is to improve and standardize surgical performance and patient outcome for every surgeon in the world.
  • AI-based CT+MRI merging and 3D reconstruction for tumor-bone surgery planning: Merging MRI with CT using AI can provide amazing advantages for 3D planning of tumor-bone surgeries. This software uses AI-tools to register CT with MRI so that a surgeon can visualize bone and tumor in 3D together and plan optimal bone cuts. The software also automatically designs cutting-jigs to make accurate bone resections.
  • Surgery Robotics: In this project, AlgoSurg is integrating its range of surgical simulation technologies with a surgical-robot hardware being built by a multi-national medical-device company (confidential), for various kinds of orthopedic surgeries starting from robotic knee-replacement. AlgoSurg is building custom surgery planning software to be integrated with the robot. The software will use AlgoSurg’s patented algorithms in the backend.
