3D Printing & The Future of Orthopedic Surgery

The way that we currently heal bones could be about to experience an exciting revolution of the 3D variety! Researchers at Northwestern University are in the process of perfecting a ‘hyper-elastic bone’ using innovative 3D technology.


This development in technology could soon be used to bind tendons and bones together using live tissue! This is a fairly new discovery and the technology is not yet approved for human use. However, the potential for improvements to ongoing care and post-surgery results for patients are potentially huge!
