Playing Are 3D Printed Orthotics the Secret to Happy Feet?

The Doctors are joined by aesthetic foot surgeon Dr. Ali Sadrieh to share how 3D printing continues to change how medicine is practiced, this time making major advances in orthotics. 

ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork has dealt with foot pain for many years and Dr. Sadrieh suggested he try 3D printed orthotics to address his big toe arthritis and improve his gait. Dr. Sadrieh explains the technology performs a 3D scan for a patient's feet and captures a high-resolution image of the bottom of the feet, a scan of what the foot is doing when someone walks, which all helps produce an orthotic device that is unique to each patient.
