Will 3D printers, bioprinters change the future of surgery?

Bioprinted organs would not look like those studied in anatomy books

When an MRI revealed a golf ball-sized tumour growing in Pamela Shavaun Scott’s skull, the California psychotherapist turned to a 3D printer to help find the least invasive and risky way for doctors to extract it.

Her husband, Michael Balzer, the founder of a 3D printing service company, used her medical records to create a three-dimensional image of her brain on his computer and print a 3D model of it.
