Seattle Children’s Custom Care Program Launched

The best care isn’t one-size-fits-all. That’s why Seattle Children’s Improvement & Innovation launched a Custom Care program in 2019, to provide our doctors with 3D-modeling capabilities that can be customized to our pediatric patients’ specific anatomies.

This program operationalizes innovative surgical planning and allows on-demand custom modeling for complex surgeries. Using 3D clinical image modeling and printing we enhance care quality, safety, and patient and family experience through surgical planning, simulation, education and rehabilitation services. With a patient-specific focus, custom care empowers team members to communicate and demonstrate complex medical situations and the care they may undertake to patients and families alike.
