3D Printing Makes Surgery Safer, Less Invasive And More Effective
Cooke, who typically works with orthopedic surgeons and dental surgeons and their human patients, offered to create a 3D model of Bento's injured leg that his surgeon could use to plan a second surgery.
The advent of 3D printing hasn't just had its impact on human or even canine medicine, but equine as well. Companies such as VetOvation is using 3D printing to make large animal surgeries safer and less invasive by allowing surgeons to use visualization technology in order to plan the surgical approach before making the first cut, keep incisions smaller and disruption to internal structures to a minimum.
