Internal anatomy varies by shape and size based on factors such as gender, age, ethnicity, and body type. However, due to economies of scale, most implant manufacturers produce a range of standard sizes and assume that these implants will address the broadest range of patients’ needs. This “few sizes fit all” philosophy can result in mismatched sizes—leading to complications such as post-operative pain, implant failure, and infection. With the advent of 3D printing, an implant can be tailor-made to the exact shape required by an individual—ensuring a greater degree of fit and function. The key market drivers of 3D printing in healthcare include the growing demand for patient-specific products in orthopedics, dental, and maxillofacial surgery; enhanced productivity leading to reduced waiting periods for devices; and diminishing cost barriers associated with traditional product manufacturing.
