Dr. Poelstra of The Robotic Spine Institute of Las Vegas has been featured in Becker’s Spine Review.

The discussion is on the impact of 3D Printing technology in spine surgery and how it has already become one of the most exciting developments in recent years.

Excerpt from the interview…

Question: How do you see 3D-printing evolving in spine surgery in the next three years?

Dr. Kornelis Poelstra: 3D printing has provided us with a wealth of new implant choices, and the ability to engineer an increasing number of solutions for our patients is tremendously exciting.

Substantial improvements can be anticipated in the near future by changing the 3D-printed structures with new advanced computer modeling, and I am especially excited about the opportunity to make less rigid implants for patients with a decreased bone mineral density and osteoporosis.
