In the Health and Science section of The Week magazine this article about a bespoke 3D printed pelvis really caught my eye.
Apparently a bone cancer sufferer who three years ago had to have half of his pelvis removed has had a new pelvis created on a 3D printer (reported The Daily Telegraph).
How amazing is that?
The bone that needed to be replaced was so big that a standard implant could not be fitted so Doctors decided on a bespoke pelvis to be printed.
Three years on, and the patient could walk again, albeit with a stick !!!
