Lukasz Witek, Nick Tovar

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The fields of Biomedical Engineering, Dentistry, Medicine and Surgery all have seen an increased adoption of 3D printing technology. The clinicians have been working closely with engineers thru the various steps in an effort to provide more efficient and less financially burdensome product. From sterilizable intra-operative 3D printed models to live bioprinting, 3D printing is helping dentists and surgeons refine existing treatment approaches, driving innovation in areas such as tissue engineering and vascularized composite allotransplantation.
