bone grafts

Startup uses 3D printing tech to create alternative to bone grafts

A Michigan startup is using 3D printing technology to help surgeons reconstruct skeletal defects – minimizing the need for bone grafts to fill areas with significant missing bone. Tissue Regeneration Systems is developing porous, bioresorbable scaffolding that can replace itself with natural bone, leaving no residual implanted device. Instead of requiring metal plates and screws, the material is computer […]
