Posted on Updated on

According to the Dr. Liu Zhongjun, ” The titanium mesh tube can only be this long; far shorter than 19 centimeters. 3D printing comes to our assistance to produce implants of whatever size and shape”.

He is the chief orthopedics surgeon.

    Thanks. Yes, your absolutely right 3D printing is expensive. But if we see good results in health and medicine. I think it will worth it:)

    Wonderful advance in medicine with this technology. Learning about 3-D printing to reproduce chess pieces I carved from wood but all seems too expensive.
