3D printer technology helps facial reconstruction surgery
A survivor of a serious motorcycle accident has had pioneering surgery to reconstruct his face using a series of 3D printed parts. Stephen Power was left disfigured and suffered with two broken arms, a broken leg, two broken cheekbones, a shattered eye socket and broken jaw. Doctors believed the best way to restore his face was by using 3D modelling techniques and 3D printing to make specific parts for the shape of his face. Report by Sarah Kerr.
