Stratasys Partners with Children’s Hospital to Open 3D Printing Center of Excellence
“The medical industry is full of remarkable stories about how 3D printing is changing and even saving lives. Medical 3D printing is a field that is growing fast, and its growth and evolution comes largely thanks to hospitals themselves, which are willing to experiment with new technology and thus push it forward. 3D printing companies play a role as well as they develop medicine-specific machines and materials and work with hospitals to implement those products in the real world.
One particularly technology-forward hospital is SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. Named a “Best Children’s Hospital” by US News and World Report, Cardinal Glennon has been working with 3D printing for a while, namely a Stratasys J750 multi-color, multi-material 3D printer. Now the hospital is teaming up with Stratasys to open a new 3D Printing Center of Excellence that will serve as a space to facilitate innovation in multiple 3D printing-related medical areas, including pre-surgical preparation, medical research and patient treatment. Areas of focus include neurosurgery, orthopedics, cardiac treatment, and hand and cranio maxillofacial reconstructive surgery…”
