3D printing/additive modelling technology enables the veterinary practitioner to create custom references specific to individual patients. Applications for the technology have surpassed simple replicas of bones and are now utilized as surgical guides and instruments. Modern materials offer biocompatibility and the potential for idealized implantable prosthetics is now possible. With the increased accessibly and affordability of printers, off-site design specialists can engineer proofs from standard cross-sectional images that can be locally printed as point-of-care in the veterinary clinic. Gain an understanding of model creation and printing, as well as exposure to its multiple utilities.

Sun Young Kim, DVM, MS, DACVS-SA

Assistant Professor
Michigan State University

Dr. Kim graduated in 2000 from Seoul National University in Korea where he stayed another four years for further clinical training in small animal surgery and graduate study related to motion analysis. He moved to the USA in 2004 as an international surgical fellow at Michigan State University for a year. After the program, Dr. Kim worked at the University of California as a junior specialist in comparative orthopedic research focused on biomechanics and motion analysis. He completed a rotating internship at the University of Florida in 2009 and a small animal surgery residency at the UC-Davis in 2012. After the residency, Dr. Kim taught students and house officers at the UC-Davis as faculty until 2015. Currently, he works at Michigan State University as faculty in small animal orthopedics. His research interests include biomechanics, 3-D modeling, and computer-assisted operation. His clinical interests are orthopedic trauma, joint disease, minimally invasive surgery, deformity, patient-specific surgical guide and implant design, etc. - all about orthopedics. He also loves soft tissue surgery.

Fred Wininger, VMD, MS, ACVIM (Neurology)

Section head Neurology/Neurosurgery
Veterinary Specialty Services

Dr. Fred Wininger is the section head of the neurology and neurosurgery department at Veterinary Specialty Services, a busy referral private practice in St. Louis. He is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Neurology).
Dr. Wininger graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. After concluding a rotating small animal medicine and surgery internship at the University of Georgia, he completed his neurology/neurosurgery residency at Washington State University, concurrently earning a Master of Science in Neuroscience in 2009.

Following residency, Dr. Wininger joined the faculty at the University of Missouri as an assistant professor of neurology/neurosurgery and a member of the Comparative Neurology Program. In addition to serving as the attending neurosurgical clinician at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, he was an active researcher involved in the development of therapy for neurodegenerative diseases that affect both young dogs and children. His contribution to both enzyme replacement and gene therapy yielded international awards and translated into viable therapies that are used in both animals and humans. He maintains an adjunct professor role at Mizzou and remains an active member of the research and teaching program there. He developed one of the first hybrid private practice/academic residency training programs with the faculty at MU and trains four residents per year that will go on to practice neurosurgery themselves.

Dr. Wininger has extensive clinical training in all aspects of veterinary neurology/neurosurgery with a neurosurgical certification from the ACVIM. His special interests include advanced MRI neuroimaging techniques and minimally invasive neurosurgical procedures. He is the founding and current treasurer of Veterinary Neurosurgical Society, an organization committed to uniting veterinary surgeons and neurosurgeons in discovering the best therapy for pets. He is the founder of 3D Veterinary Printing LLC.
