3D printing innovation comes in many forms, but one of the most gratifying is to see how it is solving problems in the medical field. From producing perfect replicas of organs and bones for surgical guides to manufacturing one-of-a-kind medical devices, the prognosis for 3D printing in medicine is extremely positive.
3D printing offers substantial advantages in planning for surgeries, allowing physicians to visualize and manipulate internal organs, blood vessels or bones in advance of the actual operations. Especially useful in lengthy, complex and delicate procedures, 3D printed medical models and surgical guides have been used to plan conjoined twin separations, pediatric heart surgeries, facial transplants and more.
