How 3D Printing Improves Medical Treatment

Revolutionizing medical treatment methods, 3D printing continues to offer attractive benefits to the medical industry.    

FREMONT, CA: In order to improve existing medical treatment methods and techniques, medical professionals are approaching innovative solutions and adopting numerous technologies. One of the revolutionary technologies, 3D printing, has primarily contributed to the medical industry and continued to help the medical professionals in exploring new treatment solutions. From simplifying the complicated surgeries to enabling customization of prosthetics, 3D printing plays an essential role in the medical industry. 

• Personalized Prosthetics

Medical professionals use 3D printers to design prosthetics with more flexible options in forms, sizes, and colors. The 3D printing benefits modern prosthetic manufacturers by allowing them to provide standard prosthetic models in cost-effective ranges. The freedom to design prosthetics increases the availability of personalized prosthetics for patients according to their requirements. From custom-made limbs to other parts of patients’ body, 3D printing helps the prosthetic developers create a natural fitting and appealing prosthetic models. 

• Simplified Surgeries

3D printing also benefits the surgeons by offering advanced abilities to handle patient-specific anatomical models instead of using X-rays, ultrasound, and Computed Tomography (CT) reports. The physical, spatial, and tactical advantages of 3D printing increase the preparedness of surgeons before operations and reduce the surgery time. 3D printing provides the exact replica of patient-specific organs, allowing surgeons to practice on before performing complicated operations.

• Tissue Bio-printers

3D printers are used as bio-printers to create artificial living tissues and organs. The artificial tissues and organs are massively used for medical research, as the prototypes accurately mimic the organs on a miniature scale. These innovative techniques also prove to be cheaper alternatives to human organ transplants. With the help of 3D printing, some medical research center continues to develop organoids with fully cell-based functionalities and also work on 3D printing skin grafting to help burn victims.

Today, there are numerous surgical instruments available in the market, which are produced based on 3D printers. 3D printing technology contributes to improving medical processes, operations results, and patients’ quality of life.
