Using 3D Print Technology To Restore A Child’s Nose

It was just over five years ago that the first commercially available 3D printer hit the market. Today, doctors can 3D print a nose for a disfigured child. cool Imagine where we will be by 2020.

"The procedure is akin to a ‘nose transplant’ in that we were able to replace the nose with a functional implant," says lead physician Dr. Dagan. "This procedure may be a breakthrough in facial reconstruction because the patient will never have to deal with the standard issues of transplantation, such as tissue rejection or a lifetime of immunosuppressive therapies."
