3D printing and bio-printing are rapidly expanding methods of manufacturing that found numerous applications in healthcare. They would become a part of mainstream medical practice to treat a wide range of people. As manufacturing prices go down, 3D printing makes customizations more possible and consequently, formerly impossible treatments easier. The applications of the technologies in medicine are revolutionizing the way surgeries, disrupting prosthesis and implant markets as well as dentistry are been carried out.

With the tremendous response on our past annual 3D Printing Healthcare Conference 20th & 21st October 2016, we are excited to introduce our new edition of 3D printing & Bio-printing in Healthcare Conference on 12th & 13th October 2017 in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Case studies and sessions will reveal the potential application of 3D printing and Bio-printing technologies for the biomedical area. Special emphasis on the challenges and innovations of the area with focus on biomaterial analysis, surgical planning and generation of implants.
