A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230149090A1) describes a method and system for generating a patient-specific surgeon-specific surgical plan for joint implantation procedures. The method involves receiving a surgeon-specific surgery profile, which includes guidance values for various surgical parameters for the chosen implant. Additionally, a patient-specific post-surgery desired functional profile is received, which represents the expected functional performance of the joint after the implantation. Bone registration data for the patient's bone members is also collected and used to create representations of the bone members within a coordinate system. During the surgical procedure, movement-related data is captured, representing the spatial poses of features associated with the bone members and joint
