1. An orthopedic implant manufactured for a specific patient comprising:

  • a femoral knee implant core having an interior multiplanar surface including a plurality of planar surfaces configured to correspond to a plurality of corresponding resection planes of a distal femoral bone of the specific patient; and

    a patient-specific porous construct including a plurality of layers attached to corresponding planar surfaces of the femoral knee implant, each layer constructed to replicate a three-dimensional porous structure of a bone layer along a corresponding resection plane of femoral bone, the porous structure determined from medical imaging scans of the un-resected femoral bone;

    wherein the patient-specific porous construct three-dimensionally varies throughout each layer in a patient-specific manner according to the three-dimensional porous structure of the bone layer.
