NYU Langone Medical Center’s 3D printing technology helps Manhattan woman beat rare bone cancer

nyulangone2n-1-webWhen Sara Morales found out two years ago that she had a rare bone cancer, it felt like the cruelest kind of déjà vu.

The 34-year-old Lower East Side resident was at the time still doing rehab on her newly-replaced right knee following surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from above her shin.

“It was completely, utterly devastating,” Morales recalled. “The first time I got diagnosed, it didn’t seem real … This time, I knew what was involved in curing it and all the nightmarish things that come with cancer.”

What she didn’t know, at least initially, was that there was no simple way to treat her new cancer, known as osteosarcoma. The tumor was growing deep in her pelvic bone, wedged behind a cluster of major organs and muscles.
