The Next Big Thing in Medicine: 3D Printing.
Dear Sarah Boyd,
My name is TaVon Cates and I am a biology major at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am doing research on a relatively new scientific innovation that I am sure your readers would love to hear about. I know that your brand is always looking for the next big thing, so no need to look any further because 3D printing to save lives is it. Many know that 3D printing has been around for years, now they’re bringing an old invention and putting it into new uses. 3D printing can be thought of like printing in layers to build a 3D object.
World renowned doctors are everyday understanding more and more about a newly found technology in the medical world that will save many lives. 3D printing in the use of transplants in the operating room. There have been many advancements in this field, especially within the last 2-3 years. There have already been a number of life-saving procedures done thanks to this technology. Many lives have been changed and many people grateful to be alive and performing everyday functions due to 3D Printing.
3D printing have helped create artificial bone structures such as a pelvis for a man who lost over half of his in his battle with cancer. 3D printing helped this man to walk again, something that the majority of people take for granted. A number of other structures have been created thanks to 3D printing such as kidneys, thyroids, stomach structures, and a number of other organs. Although there are still studies going on with this procedure, things seem promising for the future of the medical field and 3D printing.
This new technology is sure to change lives, much like the ones mentioned above. And it will continue to change lives over the years as the technology becomes more and more advanced. Soon, I’m sure with the technology, 3D printed hearts will be able to fully function and operate efficiently. 3D printed models of hearts have already been made with great precision in replicating an actual human heart. It is just a matter of time before we are able to implant a 3D model of just about any structure in the body.
As you can tell, 3D printing is the next big thing in medical technology. It is a subject that is being researched worldwide. There have already been successful organ transplants with 3D organs into live animals. The next step is full implants into humans, so the world should be hearing about this in the near future. Things to look forward in the actual article will be more specifics such as case studies on mice and the transplants they were able to do with them. A heartwarming article about how 3D printing help save a toddler’s life and many more ways 3D printing is going to change the world. Thank you for your time in reviewing my topic.
