The Healthcare is expected to be one of the fastest-growing sectors within the overall market, expanding at a compound annual growth rate of 20-25 percent over the next half-decade by experts. The technology already has made an indelible impact on the industry where 3-D printers have created prosthetic limbs for amputees, new faces for trauma victims, and practice models & actual orthopedic implant for surgeons. And with the right computer software, the right materials and a little old-fashioned imagination, 3-D printers can make just about anything.

3D PRINTING WORLD – THINK BOARD Orthopedic & Surgical Simulation is the event we propose to discuss the opportunity of the technology for Orthopedic surgery and knee replacement where the 3D printers not only help in creating an orthopedic implant tailor-made to fit the patient's unique socket, but also how it can make tools at just the right size or angle to ensure that the doctors can get the perfect fit. So now it is as simple to buy and make the right fitted knee implant, which can be tailor, made for a perfect fit.

Until the advent of 3-D printing, orthopedic surgeons had to choose knee implants from an array of pre-made prostheses of varying sizes. Surgeons looked for the closest match, then set about cutting and scraping in the operating room until it all came together. Then after a little press fitting and gluing they sewed you up.

The beauty of a 3-D prosthesis is that it conforms in terms of size and shape to what's already there. That means there's a lot less cutting needed to achieve the proper fit.

The process of 3-D printing, or additive printing, applies successive layers of material in different shapes to make a three-dimensional solid object from a digital model. For the implants, the material used is titanium, a special metal that has been used for orthopedic implants for decades. However, the shapes of the 3-D products are much different than earlier models.

Orthopedic implants are artificial devices incorporated into joints and bones to restore normal functions, such as spine implants to help anchor the spine, or hip replacements. They are widely used for patients suffering from bone damage caused by injury or disease, such as osteoarthritis, which causes pain and stiffness in joints. Due to the limits of traditional engineering methods, the shapes of orthopedic implants used conventionally in regular way are usually geometric patterns and, as a result, cannot attach to bones firmly without additional cement, screws or fixing plates. But 3-D printing can virtually produce implants in any shape, as long as the computer that controls the printer has a digital model to follow. Thus, such implants match better with the bones around them than traditional ones.

Also, through tiny pores made in the new implants, bones are able to grow into the implants, securing the implant. Researchers have also used a 3D printer to create a bone-like material that could be used to create customized scaffolds to stimulate the growth of replacement bone tissue this would allow customized scaffolds to be produced for new bone to grow on in orthopedic procedures and to deliver medicine for treating osteoporosis. So in all this aspect, 3-D printed implants are more efficient & reliable than traditional ones.

Trinity Media & Marketing Solutions a company promoting new and innovative technologies have identified the potential of 3D Printing to formulate the first 3D PRINTING WORLD consortium for all the sectors. And the effort is also to promote and share this technology with the fraternity of orthopedic surgeons who will benefit from this DIGITAL MANUFACTURING of custom implants a GAME CHANGING technology for the future.
