DALLAS, TX, June 1, 2021 – MedCAD is proud to announce an exclusive agreement with Premier, Inc. (NASDAQ: PINC) to provide point-of-care solutions through 3D medical printing and surgical planning.
The culmination of years of research and development, long hours, a relentless obsession with customer service and new market clearances has earned MedCAD a brand refresh that drives forward our mission of Restoring Humanity One Patient at a Time.
MedCAD is proud to announce 510(k) market clearance for its new AccuPlan System through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

When choosing cranioplasty implants, how do you know which option is best? Know the pro’s and con’s of each material and application.
A unique Custom Surgical Solution involved a syndromic patient requiring a two-piece PEEK implant and 3D anatomical models. In this case, patient growth expanded the frontal and parietal bones, widening the frontal and sagittal sutures. By surgeon recommendation, a patient-specific PEEK implant was elected to fill the void and protect the patient’s brain.
Advances in computer imaging and precise manufacturing processes (especially additive manufacturing) have led to systems and processes providing surgeons with a very effective tool in their armamentarium for the best surgical outcomes.
Most people know PEEK is expensive as a material, but PEEK Cranial Implants may be more affordable than you think.
A patient was born with a congenital malformation called pediatric pulmonary atresia, meaning the infant’s heart developed without a natural pulmonary valve orifice causing an obstruction of blood flow to the lungs. In an effort to better visualize the defect, MedCAD 3D printed the data from her chest as an AccuModel product, specifically depicting the heart, surrounding trachea and esophagus.
MedCAD was recently featured in the story of the 15-year old Puerto-Rican girl, who had a rare inborn defect called frontonasal dysplasia. Because of the disease, the face bones stopped developing during the prenatal period. Several surgeries were attempted to correct the condition without success, leaving her face and jaw asymmetrical. Her family researched MedCAD and decided to give the digitally planned surgery a try. She arrived at Forest Park Medical Center (Dallas) to undergo craniofacial surgery.
