We provide reports on failed hip replacements that help surgeons, patients, lawyers, manufacturers and healthcare regulators in understanding why the failure occurred.
In the same way that an aircraft black-box helps separate pilot error from structural faults, the retrieved implant helps trace whether the cause lies with surgeon or manufacturer. We prepare our reports using state-of-the-art measurement machines that follow international standards. We use custom-made computer software for three-dimensional shape processing. All of our methods are published in peer reviewed, international medical and engineering journals.
