This award-winning animation illustrates a multi-disciplinary project to develop an alternative approach to bone replacement--one that obviates the need for bone harvesting surgery without diminishing the superior clinical outcomes associated with autografting. In completing the first phase of the project, the team of collaborators developed an integrated workflow from surgeon to modeler that yields a perfectly-fitting custom device that demonstrates the feasibility of this approach in a real clinical setting.

This animation was selected for screening at the SIGGRAPH 2004 Computer Animation Festival.
