Our orthopedic surgeon and joint replacement specialist, Dr. Todd Borus, was recently featured on KATU/ABC news at 6 for his innovative work with 3D printing and knee replacement. Check out the video below!
Because off-the-shelf knee replacements aren’t designed to your specific anatomy, surgeons have to compromise on implant fit. This compromise may result in having implant overhang (implant hangs over the bone) or underhang (the implant is too small, leaving the bone exposed and uncovered). It could also result in an implant that isn’t aligned properly.
About Dr. Borus
Todd A. Borus, M.D. is an orthopedic surgeon with sub-specialty interest in arthritis and joint replacement surgery. Dr. Borus employs minimally invasive techniques, including MAKOplasty, a robotic assisted partial knee resurfacing procedure. Dr. Borus believes in a multifaceted approach to patient care including: a thorough understanding of the patient’s needs, use of modern diagnostic modalities, treatment with appropriate conservative measures, and advanced surgical reconstructive techniques when indicated. This approach requires expert knowledge of a patient’s problems and effective state-of-the-art treatment solutions.
His fellowship training in adult reconstructive and joint replacement surgery allows Dr. Borus to care for a wide spectrum of joint disease from the initial onset of cartilage degradation to complex joint replacement surgery.
