With the explosive technological developments, 3D printing is now also entering into operating theatres across the world and the technology will soon alleviate the shortages and be as common as a surgeon or a scalpel. 3D printing is already used for the manufacturing of dental implants, hearing devices and prosthetics. The fact that the technology enables us to print extremely complex structures, however, will soon see us bioprinting live tissue and transplantable organs. These organs will most probably be printed using the patient's own cells, in order to decrease organ rejection. Medical researchers are already growing live tissue to help patients with disfigurements and replacements of body parts or organs. .
