Implants Designed Specifically For You

Meshworks designs and manufactures patient-specific implants for bone reconstruction surgery. Custom implants can be useful for patients with complex cases, especially if standard, off-the-shelf implants are not suitable.

Meshworks creates implants which perfectly match your anatomy, helping you get back on your feet faster.

When could a custom implant help?

Bone reconstruction surgery is used to fill bone cavities which may be caused by various conditions described below. Discuss with your surgeon whether custom implants are the best option for you.

Meshwork Implants

Proven Design

Our Design Engineers work in collaboration with surgeons to design each implant. A 3-D visualization of your joint is created from x-rays, allowing us to design an implant specific to you. After design, our engineers run simulations to check the designs before sending the Treatment Plan to your surgeon for final approval.

Structured to Support Regrowth

Meshworks’ implants are 3D printed at our manufacturing facility in Oxford. Many of our implants have a cage-like structure to help bone regrow, aiming to improve your long-term recovery.

Materials Fit for Purpose

Implants are manufactured out of a titanium alloy which has been used for many years in orthopaedic surgery. These alloys are biocompatible and have a strength similar to bone, helping to increase implant longevity.

What should I expect?

If your surgeon prescribes a custom implant, the following steps will take you from prescription to surgery.

Initial Scans
Your surgeon will take CT scans of your joint and send them to Meshworks. Our Bioengineers will use these to construct a 3D representation of your joint in our design platform.
Design & Manufacture
Meshworks’ Design Engineers meet with your surgeon to design your implant using a simulation of your joint. Using the implant design, we develop a treatment plan tailored to you. Implants are manufactured by our experienced production team who run simulations, mechanical tests and quality checks to ensure each implant meets our quality standards.
Implants are shipped to your hospital where the surgery takes place. After surgery, your surgeon will advise you about rehabilitation and how quickly you can return to normal activity.
