East Liverpool Health System now has the ability to perform 3d image knee replacements. This new technology gives patients a custom, one-of-a-kind knee replacement. Dr. Marcy Dickey used advanced imaging technology to create a 3d map of the patient's knee. Then, 3d printing technology creates a wax mold that is used to form the metal component of the total knee. The result is a total knee implant that is exactly the shape and size of the patient's natural knee.
