3D Printed PEEK Spinal implants successfully used in US surgeries

Posted on

3D printing has been increasingly used in the medical field, including for spinal implants.

PEEK (polyetheretherketone) is a type of thermoplastic material used in medical implants due to its biocompatibility, durability, and resistance to wear and tear. 3D printing allows for creation of patient-specific implants, leading to better outcomes and shorter recovery times.

There have been successful cases of 3D-printed PEEK spinal implants being used in surgeries, with some studies showing promising results regarding patient outcomes and reduced complications. However, as with any new technology or medical procedure, further research and clinical trials are needed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of 3D-printed spinal implants fully.
