Chinese Student Receives First 3D Printed Thoracic Vertebrae Implant & the Surgery is a Success

17 12 2014

Back in August, we reported on the implantation of the world’s first 3D printed vertebrae, and it was surely a sign of things to come from the medical field. Usually once one procedure is successfully completed, other doctors and other hospitals throughout the world begin taking notice and start to consider using these same practices. Now, yet another patient has been successfully treated with 3D printed vertebrae, in a “first of its kind” surgery that took place on December 3 at the The First Affiliated Hospital located at the Zhejiang University School of Medicine  in Hangzhou, China.
