The Real Wolverine: Anatomics Works with Surgeon to Design 3D Printed Titanium Metacarpal Implant

While I did not read the comic books, I was a big fan of the ’90s X-Men cartoon series growing up. In fact, the first short story I ever wrote was about a canine with superpowers named X-Dog…pretty original, right? My love for the mutant superheroes was reawakened when Bryan Singer’s blockbuster movie X-Men came out in […]

Crocodile Cartilage and Human Stem Cells Used to 3D Print Joint Cartilage

Crocodile Cartilage and Human Stem Cells Used to 3D Print Joint Cartilage

Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive procedure, where the cartilage of a person’s damaged joint is examined and treated with an arthroscope – an endoscope inserted into the damaged joint through a small incision. But just because it’s minimally invasive doesn’t mean that it’s not still painful, with a potentially long recovery time. But now, a microbiologist […]
