Step by Step process

How Kinomatic Works

Step 1

Consultation with your surgeon

During your consultation your surgeon will determine if you’re a candidate for Kinomatic VR.

Step 2

CT scan

Quick 10 minute CT scan of your affected body part. The radiology facility will send the CT scan to our team of engineers.

Step 3

VR modeling

Our team of engineers will develop an exact 3D replica of your joint. After reviewing your model your surgeon will start planning out your surgery.

Step 4

Custom Surgical Plan

Our surgeon will develop a custom surgical template and detailed surgical plan based on your anatomy, the size of your bone, the alignment of your joint, the quality of your ligaments and tendons, and your pathology (how you wore out the joint). Next your surgeon will recreate your natural biomechanical alignment, and correct for any malalignment.

Step 5


The day of surgery your surgeon will review your model and reference the surgical plan in the operating room. Most cases can be done out-patient, and you can home home the a few hours after surgery.

Step 6

Do what you want.

Enjoy the benefits of receiving a surgery designed specifically for your own body; results so natural, you'll be ready to jump back into all of your favorite activites.

VR available to surgeons



Knee Replacement

Knee replacement is the gold standard of care for severely arthritic cases that do not respond to conservative treatment. Anyone who has dealt with the constant pain of severe arthritis or injury in the knee knows how serious a detriment to well-being and quality of life it can be.

Types of Knee Diagnoses:

Knee pain can be the result of several conditions. An accurate diagnosis must be made to determine how to best treat your symptoms.

  • ACL Injury
  • MCL sprain
  • Dislocated kneecap
  • Bakers cyst

Hip Replacement

Also known as a total hip arthroplasty, this procedure involves removing damaged bone and replacing it with a combination of artificial parts. You could potentially need a hip replacement if you are experiencing daily hip or groin pain, stiffness, and if other, non-surgical treatment options are becoming ineffective.

Types of Hip Diagnoses:

There can be multiple conditions that can cause damage to the hip joint. An accurate diagnosis must be made to determine how to best treat your symptoms.

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Osteonecrosis

Shoulder Replacement

A total shoulder replacement involves removing the damaged ball-and-socket joint and replacing it with similarly shaped prosthetics to restore range of motion and strength to the shoulder. Shoulder replacements are considered to be as safe as hip and knee replacement surgeries, and are considered to be exceptionally effective at eliminating severe joint pain that has not responded to other, conventional treatments.

Types of Shoulder Diagnoses:

Shoulder pain can be the result of several conditions. An accurate diagnosis must be made to determine how to best treat your symptoms.

  • Shoulder fracture
  • Arthritis
  • Torn rotator cuff

Spine Surgery

Spine surgery can be unnerving for any patient. Whether you have issues with your neck, upper back, or lower back, you don’t want to take any chances. You want the most advanced technology, and a surgeon who is willing to take the extra time to plan out every detail of your procedure. Being able to diagnose your problem in full detail and create a virtual template for your surgery allows your surgeon to optimize your outcome.

Types of Spinal Diagnoses:

Back pain can be the result of several conditions. An accurate diagnosis must be made to determine how to best treat your symptoms.

  • Herniated or ruptured disks
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Vertebral fracture
  • Degenerative disk disease

Kinomatic Benefits

Smarter (and Smaller)

Kinomatic VR helps your surgeon plan a procedure that is minimally invasive and modeled to your exact anatomy. Every single groove and ridge of bone and every ligament are mapped and factored into the operation, greatly reducing the amount of resection that might otherwise occur through traditional surgery.

More Accurate

During a joint replacement, surgeons only have a couple of inches through which to see their patient's anatomy. Kinomatic VR is able to show the patient's anatomy in an entirely new way allowing for higher degrees of familiarity and accuracy in the operating room.

A Better Fit
For Life

Kinomatic VR allows your surgeon to determine your natural biomechanical alignment. The result is a knee, hip, or shoulder that feels so natural you’ll forget you ever had surgery.

Why VR?

In traditional surgery, the practitioner can see only a fraction of the problem at one time. It’s like having a partial view of the tip of an iceberg, with no view at all of what’s underneath the surface. Kinomatic VR solves this problem entirely by giving your surgeon the means to view the joint from every angle, up close and in full.

How VR Works

The process begins with imaging. A custom CT scan gives an incredibly detailed, digital representation of the affected area. This digital recreation accounts for every physical detail nuance, from ligaments to every groove and ridge of bone. This visual data is rendered into a 3D file that is viewed through a portable headset, which allows for an immersive and reactive viewing experience. Using a wireless handset, the user can manipulate and rotate the image of the joint to study it from every angle.

How VR Helps Your Surgeon

Kinomatic VR helps surgeons plan better, faster, and less invasive procedures by eliminating much of the guesswork. Through virtual reality based on images of your actual hip, knee, shoulder, or spine, your surgeon can have a perfect view of the issue from any angle they need. There is no more guesswork. Before a single incision is made, your surgeon knows exactly where the problem lies and–perhaps just as important–where it doesn’t. This means no unnecessary removal of material, faster operating times, and more satisfied patients.
