Interview with orthopaedic surgeon & 3D printing enthusiast Dr. Bruno Gobbato

screen-shot-2016-12-16-at-14-58-08-1200x802Modern medicine is rife with applications of 3D printing technologies. California-based Spinal Elements has developed a method for custom 3D printed surgical aids, and making pins out of medical grade PEKK and metals such as titanium are now commonplace within fracture surgery.

With 3D printing technologies being promoted by companies and specific research in development, it’s not often that we get to hear from those independent clinicians using the technology daily in the operating room. And so, 3DPI decided to get in touch with Dr. Bruno Gobbato – an orthopaedic surgeon using 3D printing to develop his practice in Brazil.
