Most people still think of paralysis as something irreversible – but that’s not necessarily the case anymore thanks to new medical technology, including 3D printing. Recently, a Chinese man found himself unable to use his legs after doctors were forced to remove a large portion of his backbone in order to remove a tumor. But a team of surgeons at Beijing Third University Hospital 3D printed a titanium mesh implant that would actually facilitate the regrowth of the man’s spinal cord. Last year, the patient took his first steps since before his tumor was removed.

In another amazing case, a woman suffering from a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage had to have a portion of her skull removed during emergency surgery. Her skull was then replaced with a titanium skull, 3D printed as a perfect reproduction from the patient’s CT scans.

Those are just two of the cases that stand out as examples of the incredible things happening with 3D printing in the medical field. It’s hard to exaggerate just how much the technology is changing medicine, saving lives, restoring mobility, and easing pain. 3D bioprinting has shown promise for restoring fertility to cancer survivors and repairing damaged heart tissue. 3D printing has made prosthetics affordable and accessible to even babies, and it may eventually enable children to receive all the vaccinations they need in just one dose.

There are plenty of heartwarming stories about what medical 3D printing has done for people, but those examples represent what is becoming a very large, very profitable industry. According to SmarTech Markets Publishing, sectors such as 3D printed prosthetics and implants, medical models, personalized medicine and dental devices will generate more than $5 billion in revenues by 2021. Investors, entrepreneurs and managers are wisely taking a very close look at those sectors and the profitable opportunities they offer.

From January 22-23, 3DPrint.com and SmarTech will be hosting an Additive Manufacturing Strategies conference called “The Future of 3D Printing in Medicine and Dentistry: A Business and Investment Summit” to discuss the financial side of 3D printed medicine and dentistry. This summit is focused on marketing, business development and product management and will feature nearly 30 speakers who will offer thoughts from medical and business as well as technological and legal perspectives.

Attendees can expect to learn what medical and dental 3D printing applications are being used now and which will be used in the future, and where bioprinting is expected to generate revenue. They will learn more about how supply chains will be disrupted by 3D printing in medicine and dentistry, and how the markets are being changed. They will also hear about how regulatory and intellectual property issues will affect developments in medical and dental 3D printing.

Until November 15, you can register for the summit at a discounted rate of $895, 25% off the regular price of $1,195. If you’re interested in attending only one of the two days, passes are available for $695. The summit will be held at the Army and Navy Club in Washington, D.C.

A lot of important information will be available to the attendees of the Additive Manufacturing Strategies summit, so register now to attend for a reduced rate.
