Virtual Surgical Planning (VSP) Orthognathics

Virtual Surgical Planning provides data to accurately plan surgery in a computerized, digital atmosphere with customized 3D-printed surgical tools and guides. VSP knowledge and surgical tools are used during the operation, often with superior outcomes. VSP provides a more precise surgical simulation method.

Dr. Eric Stelnicki, M.D., is the first craniofacial surgeon in Florida to use VSP Orthognathics to treat complex jaw deformities related to craniofacial disorders. Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital is the first craniofacial center to use VSP computer-generated modeling plates. Dr. Stelnicki is the pioneer of the craniofacial center. 

The patients that Dr. Stelnicki performed jaw surgery on using VSP Orthognathics were diagnosed with craniofacial microsomia (CFM), also known as hemifacial microsomia. CFM describes a vast array of abnormalities that affect the skull's development before birth, including facial anatomy of reduced growth, resulting in various degrees of craniofacial asymmetry that only worsens over time.
