Orthopedic, Sports Medicine, Joint, and Trauma Animation



An orthopedic animation is a visual means used to depict medical conditions and surgical procedures for the medical specialty dedicated to the health of joints, extremities and the spine; as well as the preservation, restoration, and proper function of the musculoskeletal system.


Dynamic Knee Replacement Video Animation, Animated Joint Replacement, Orthopedic 3D Animation Surgery Video and More

Ghost Productions creates dynamic and concise visualizations of complex orthopedic treatments and surgical devices using 3D medical animation. We use the most sophisticated animation software to produce accurate orthopedic 3D animation featuring orthopedic devices and showcasing surgical procedures.

Sports Medicine and Joint Replacements

Physicians who specialize in sports medicine use these procedures to help injured athletes recover quickly and get back to performing. Orthopedic surgeons provide joint replacements for those suffering from osteoporosis or other joint diseases. The state-of-the-art surgical techniques used to install advanced medical devices are outstanding. This field uses bionic parts as surgical implants to repair and/or replace joints, which restores physical function to levels previously unattainable.

3D Orthopedics

We have beautiful models used in 3D orthopedics presentations that show musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology in great detail. Elegant and innovative surgical technologies are easier to understand after watching 3D animations that highlight the key features. Joint animation and 3D orthopedics animation engage the interest of your target market. Our medical animations make excellent presentations at conventions — such as those for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the International Skeletal Society.

Hundreds of our worldwide clients use 3D animations to market products, train surgeons and educate patients. View our orthopedic animation library and our computer-rendered medical illustrations to get an overview of the quality of our work. We can do the same for you.

Benefits of 3D Orthopedic Animation

We began during the mid-1990s, creating spine animations. We since have made the natural progression to animating orthopedic procedures of all kinds. As our experience and technical comprehension expanded (a great example was the release of the award-winning animated short, HEAL, during 2010), we developed an extensive library of 3D anatomical models to work with that are accurate and realistic.

The type of people who benefit from orthopedic animation varies wildly, from doctors and surgeons to investors, medical device sales personnel, medical facility administrators and more. Patients and investors gain just as many advantages. A few of the most prominent benefits of our medical animation and interactive media products include:




Cannulated Femoral Screw Animation Case Study

Orthopedic Animation Case Study: Cannulated Screw Marketing Animation for FlowFX, LLC.

PROJECT MISSION: Provide Orthogen with a series of short promotional animations of the Flow-FX cannulated screw systems for presentation at the AAOS convention. Two animations involve a femoral neck fracture, integrating portions of the previously produced Flow-Nail animation. Two other animations depict the Flow-FX technology in tibia and foot fracture applications.

All of these animations have the same high level of visually compelling quality of the first Flow-Nail animation.


SOLUTION: We needed to show the infusion of bone void filler (BVF) and biologics through the cannulated screw systems offered by Flow-FX, LLC. We did this with a creative particle solution developed by Sam Gannaway, who was the Technical FX Leader on the project. The solution combined a number of dynamic fluid effects that did a great job of showing the progressive intrusion of BVF and biologics through the three types of cannulated screws: Flow-Nail, Flow-Screw, and 2-Can.

Our client, Patrick Sweeney, of Flow-FX, encouraged us to explore all of the creative efforts that we could to produce the most compelling results. Patrick’s openness to our creative ideas and the camera angles we proposed helped our creative animation team and 3D techs deliver a really cool and dynamic 3D animation. Josh Lynch, Creative Director on the project, used swooping camera direction for magnificent effects.

Swooping cameras and sensitive focus on the subject matter help this animation piece hold the audience’s attention and show the innovative solutions of the cannulated screw systems created by Flow-FX, LLC and Orthogen in the most interesting ways possible. Thanks to our client Patrick for allowing us the freedom to explore new creative concepts, and thanks to Josh and Sam of the Ghost Productions team for the excellent efforts in delivering them!
