Updated: Sep 1, 2021

Additive manufacturing has been quietly building presence in the orthopedic implant space. It is estimated that the market for 3D printing in Orthopedics will grow at an annual rate of 24% between 2021 and 2025 making it red hot.

Life defining technology

All varieties of tissues and metals have been successfully implanted. In the foot and ankle space, total talus, cages for bone defects, total ankle arthroplasty and prosthetic limbs for tumor reconstruction are saving limbs.

Some companies create the value with their engineering and then outsource the 3D printing. Others have full vertical integration with printing and post printing polishing all in house. The difference will be in the lead time to surgeon and flexibility. Learn how Restor3d is doing it with this case report.
