How It Works

Taking patient data to the next dimension


We facilitate a secure and HIPAA-compliant acquisition of the patient's MRI or CT scans.


Our patent-pending tools convert MRI/CT scans to 3D printable files.


3D Ops utilizes the most advanced 3D printers available to create patient-specific anatomical replicas, customized to your surgeon's desires.


Our rapid delivery to surgeons for pre-surgical planning is within hours, always with our quality guarantee.

Scan-To-Print Process

We improve patient outcomes by enhancing pre-surgical planning.

Reduce Time in Surgery

We convert MRI and CT scan images into 3D printable data, then print 3D models of patient-specific anatomy for pre-surgical planning. The surgeons can hold, examine, plan, and even practice on the patient’s own modeled anatomy BEFORE entering the Operating Room (O.R.). Quality of patient care is enhanced and less time in the O.R. saves money. O.R. costs average $4,745 per hour. With just a 30-minute O.R. reduction per day, hospitals can save over $56,000 per month.

Improve Patient Outcomes

Improving patient outcomes is 3D Ops' passion. Patient outcomes are enhanced by:

  • Reducing a patient's time in surgery
  • Reducing a patient's time under anesthesia
  • Enables faster recovery times by
    • Less surgery trauma for patient
    • Lower blood loss during surgery
    • Higher post-op hemoglobin levels
  • Enables new surgical procedures to be planned and utilized
  • Minimizes risks by enhancing planning
  • Dramatically reduces hospital readmissions
  • Enhances surgeon and patient communications
  • Allows patients to clearly visualize their specific need and envision their healing process
