3D Printing in Medicine and Surgery: Applications in Healthcare is an advanced book on surgical and enhanced medical applications that can be achieved with 3D printing. It is an essential handbook for medical practitioners, giving access to a range of practical methods, while also focusing on applied knowledge. This comprehensive resource features practical experiments and processes for preparing 3D printable materials. Early chapters cover foundational knowledge and background reading, while later chapters discuss and review the current technologies used to engineer specific tissue types, experiments and methods, medical approaches and the challenges that lie ahead for future research.
The book is an indispensable reference guide to the various methods used by current medical practitioners working at the forefront of 3D printing applications in medicine.
- Provides a detailed introduction and narrative on how 3-D printing can be used towards developing future medicine-based therapies
- Covers up-to-date methods across a range of application areas for the first time in book form
- Presents the only book on all current areas of 3D printing in medicine that is catered to a medical rather than engineering audience
Surgeons, researchers in biomedical engineering, product design, mechanical engineering, regenerative medicine, stem cell science, pharmaceutical studies, biotechnology and/or bio-manufacturing industries

Deepti Singh is a bioengneer who has been exploring the application of polymeric materials in restoring or repairing injured tissues and organs. With a Ph.D in genetics and biotechnology, she has worked extenisively for the last decade to develop functional biomimetic that can enhance differeniation of embyronic stem cells into desired linage. This book focuses on interesting and new aspects of biomaterial design and its applications. With the emergence of bio-ink, 3D printing could potentially change the entire apporach of regenerative medicine in which instead of restoring and repairing, the disease tissue can be replaced.
