3D Systems Corporation (DDD) announced the successful spinal surgery of national sled hockey champion Mark Weimer, aided by 3D Systems’ proprietary digital manufacturing workflow for healthcare. The complicated 15-hour surgery was performed by Dr. George Frey of Mighty Oak Medical in Englewood, CO, to alleviate pain caused by nerve and spinal cord compression following previous operations. 3D Systems’ workflow was central to the success of the procedure, enabling the replication of complex patient anatomy for surgical planning, instrumentation and reference.
3D Systems supported Dr. Frey in helping Mighty Oak Medical gain clearance and bring to market its FIREFLY® Technology for pedicle screw guidance. As a partner to Mighty Oak, 3D Systems has provided expert digitization and manufacturing services, and created patient-specific anatomical models to assist with planning in and help ensure precise pedicle screw placement during Weimer’s surgery.
After a fall from construction scaffolding left Mark Weimer partially paralyzed in 1984, he adapted his life’s passions to coexist with his injury. Weimer joined a sled hockey team in 1996 and joined the U.S. National Team in 2000. Following consecutive championship victories in 2010 and 2011, Weimer retired after 15 years on the ice to take up coaching and share his love of the game with his grandsons.
