In some instances, patients may require revision ankle replacement surgery due to various reasons such as implant failure or avascular necrosis of the talus.
Dr. Mustafa Alttahir possesses expertise in addressing complex cases and offers revision total ankle replacement surgery as a viable solution. By thoroughly evaluating each patient's specific deformities and utilising advanced 3D modeling software, Dr. Alttahir ensures precise analysis and customized treatment plans.
This page explores the significance of revision ankle replacement surgery and highlights Dr. Alttahir's proficiency in utilizing custom patient-specific 3D printed implants for such procedures.
Revision ankle replacement surgery involves replacing a failed or malfunctioning ankle prosthesis with a new implant. Dr. Alttahir carefully assesses the underlying cause of the failure and tailors the surgical approach to address the specific issues. The revision surgery aims to restore joint function to failed ankle replacements or complex ankle pathology patients, alleviate their pain, and improve their outcomes, whilst avoiding the need to perform fusion surgery, salvage bone transport or reconstructive surgery, or even in worse case scenarios below knee amputation surgery.
In complex revision ankle replacement cases, Dr. Mustafa Alttahir utilizes cutting-edge technology to design and create custom patient-specific 3D printed implants. By employing advanced 3D modeling software, such as Materialise 3-matic, Dr. Alttahir can analyse patient deformities with precision and accuracy. This software allows him to generate a detailed virtual model of the patient's anatomy, facilitating the design of implants that are uniquely tailored to each individual.
Dr. Mustafa Alttahir possesses a remarkable proficiency in utilising advanced medical Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software, enabling him to design custom 3D printed metal implants from start to finish.
