The World's First Ever 3D Live Knee Surgery

On May 6 2011, 50 knee surgeons from 14 different countries were present to see the world's first ever 3D live knee surgery at the High Performance Knee Learning Centre in Annecy, France.

Two surgeries were broadcast live in 3D to the meeting venue and showcased DePuy's two new instrument launches of 2011: the first case was performed with DePuy's new High Performance instrument offering, the Sigma® HP Advanced Balancing Instruments and the second case with TruMatch™ Customised Patient Instrumentation.

The advanced instrument solutions offered to surgeons and patients was perfectly complemented by the step forward in 3D cinema technologies.  

Feedback from the organizing laboratory and participants confirmed that 3D filming and live coverage of the operation brought a real improvement to training.

The contribution of the extra dimension allows a real appreciation of the instrumentation and the surgical movement, thus opening a window for viewers to the reality of the operating room, without having to be actually present in theatre.
