3D bioprinting is a technique very similar to normal 3D printing, but instead of being used to make prototypes out of simple inorganic materials, it is used to make living three-dimensional tissues. It has been studies for a while now and several developments have been made in this field. So how close are we to the creation of the first 3D bioprinted organ ready to be transplanted into a patient?
For the first time, a remotely operated robot performed an operation in the eye of human patients. Other studies have also show that robots can be as good and sometimes better than human surgeons.
