Surgeons at NYU School of Medicine and NYU College of Dentistry successfully created 3D printed implantable bone scaffolds. In animal models, the scaffolds successfully absorbed into the animals' bodies as new bone grew in its place. The ceramic implants are made out of beta tricalcium phosphate, a compound found in natural bone, making them look and feel like real bone while also allowing them to be reabsorbed.
