3D Printing News: Replacement Jaw Implanted

The additive manufacturing world is buzzing this week about the news of the first human implant of a 3D printed replacement jawbone. An 83 year old woman had her lower jawbone surgically replaced with a new patient-specific titanium jawbone created using metal lasersintering. The new jawbone was also coated with a biocompatible ceramic layer. The jawbone implant restored the woman's jaw line, and within a day of the surgery, the patient was able to speak and eat.

To find out more about this phenomenon, just search the web for "Doctors Print Replacement Jaw from 3D printer" and you will find many stories and photos. Here are just a few of the news stories:
This is a huge breakthrough in the use of 3D printing and additive manufacturing! While Paramount doesn't specialize in human body replacement parts, we are leading the way in many applications of these technologies, including medical and healthcare applications for 3D printing.
