3D Printing in Orthopaedic Surgery
Get a quick, expert overview of the role of emerging 3D printing technology in orthopaedic surgery, devices, and implants. This concise resource by Drs. Matthew DiPaola and Felasfa Wodajo provides orthopaedic surgeons and residents with need-to-know information on the clinical applications of 3D printing, including current technological capabilities, guidance for practice, and future outlooks for this fast-growing area.
- Covers basic principles such as engineering aspects, software, economics, legal considerations, and applications for education and surgery planning.
- Discusses 3D printing in arthroplasty, trauma and deformity, the adult and pediatric spine, oncology, and more.
- Includes information on setting up a home 3D printing "plant" and 3D printing biologics.
- Consolidates today's available information on this burgeoning topic into a single convenient resource.
