First personalized restoration procedures using Bodycad's personalized unicompartmental knee system were performed in the US and EU in September last year. "I was involved throughout the production of the personalized restoration." said Prof. Werner Siebert of the Vitos Orthopaedic Clinic in Kassel, Germany, and incoming President of the German Orthopaedic Society, who performed the procedure. "I provided patient imaging, consulted with the Bodycad PREPTech and then reviewed and approved the final design. The result was an exceptional fit for the patient."
