Medicine, as we know it now, has evolved from a series of discoveries and inventions. New advancements have enabled newer and more sophisticated techniques in the fields of medicine, surgery and healthcare, in general. How, you ask? Well, 3D printing in medicine has already caused quite the revolution by aiding the 3D printing of implants and helping the surgeons with as detailed mock surgeries as possible.
Bioprinting is the next level of 3D printing in the healthcare arena and the repercussions are mindblowing! Bioprinting uses bio-inks and proteins and other constituents to build a tissue or an organ layer by layer. With the advent of 3D printing, we have now come to a point where it is possible to fabricate a living tissue, and consequently an organ, in a matter of viable period of time.
