Revolutionary advancements in technology have transformed surgical interventions, particularly in the field of 3D printing. This innovative technology has reduced trauma and allowed for the customization of precise implants, such as 3D-printed meniscus substitutes. Meniscus tears, a common knee injury, can lead to osteoarthritis if left untreated. Traditional interventions involve total joint replacement, but 3D-printed meniscus substitutes are becoming increasingly popular in tissue engineering. High-resolution imaging is used to design custom implants, which can mimic cartilage tissue and offer a more natural feel after surgery. Benefits include reduced rehabilitation time, decreased post-surgical trauma, and long-lasting durability.
