1. A pre-operative system for planning a method for orthopedic surgery, comprising:

  • a receiving device configured to receive pre-operative image data of an anatomic joint portion of a patient;

    a processor in communication with the receiving device and configured to analyze the pre-operative image data and generate a three-dimensional digital model of the anatomic joint portion based on the pre-operative image data; and

    a display device configured to display the pre-operative image data and the three-dimensional digital model;

    wherein the processor is configured to determine whether the pre-operative image data is sufficient to construct the three-dimensional digital model of the anatomic joint portion, and if pre-operative image data is sufficient to generate the three-dimensional mode of the anatomic joint portion, the processor is configured to generate a first surgical plan including a patient-specific alignment guide having a three-dimensional patient-specific surface pre-operatively configured to nest and closely conform to a corresponding surface of the anatomic joint portion of the patient in only one position relative to the anatomic joint portion; and

    if the processor determines that the pre-operative image data is insufficient to generate the three-dimensional digital mode of the anatomic joint portion, the processor is configured generate a second surgical plan including a non-patient-specific surgical implant.
