About AAOS

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Annual Meeting gives orthopedic surgeons and practitioners access to a large variety of educational and scientific programs, as well as the world’s largest exhibition of orthopedic products.

What’s new at AAOS 2018 in New Orleans?

Brainlab offers a full range of solutions for the orthopedic surgical workflow, from pre-op planning and secure image sharing to intraoperative navigation to post-op evaluation.

Visit the orthopedic Digital O.R. in our booth to discover how these integrated solutions can help minimize procedure time¹ and improve functional outcomes².

This year, we will also present the new TraumaCad AutoSizer. Powered by Quentry, Brainlab provides the orthopedic enterprise with an automatic workflow for digital templating, including implant ordering simplification.

In pre-op planning, TraumaCad and TraumaCad Mobile keep setting the standard in digital templating, with automatic features for Hip, Knee and Deformity Correction planning.

Get a sneak preview of what’s next in hip navigation and see how using TraumaCad together with our hip navigation software is changing the total hip replacement game*.

Brainlab will also highlight KNEE3 – our smart imageless navigation software that predicts joint stability while quantifying the soft tissue envelope before any bone cuts have been made.

Be sure to also join us for a closer look at our new surgical assistant—CIRQ**. With a navigated instrument inserted into its application-specific module, positional tracking allows for quick and precise image-guided alignment.

To experience Airo® Mobile Intraoperative CT and get a hands-on demo of Spine & Trauma 3D Navigation featured on Curve™ Information Guided Surgery, visit our partner DePuy Synthes Spine at booth #4051.

Visit Brainlab at booth #4335 to see how our products streamline the orthopedic workflow at every step.
