About the Presentation
Over the last 13 years, the Mayo Clinic has developed a robust in-hospital manufacturing facility utilizing 3D printing for complex patient specific pathologies and custom sterilizable patient-matched osteotomy guides. There has been a significant increase over the last 5 years in the number of hospital systems across the US that have deployed various sizes of manufacturing capabilities. Due to a combination of increased computing power, improved cross sectional imaging, and faster, more reliable additive manufacturing machines, a new medical specialty has emerged in which the physician has gained the ability to become the manufacturer of select goods. In this lecture, we discussed the challenges and benefits of manufacturing at the point of care, the current regulatory landscape, the involvement of national radiological societies in 3D printing, and the current status of insurance reimbursement. We also discussed the collaborative multidisciplinary relationships that have developed between physicians, the traditional medical manufacturing community, and the manufacturing engineering societies.
