Man Gets Wolverine Like 3D Printed Titanium Metacarpal Implant

Paul D’Urso, MD, a neurosurgeon at Epworth Healthcare and the Executive Chairman of Australian medical device company Anatomics, together with Dr. Dan Rowe, engineers from the medical device company designed a 3D printed, patient-specific metacarpal implant to replace a patient’s two missing metacarpals and missing capitate that had resulted from his injury.  The implant was designed with titanium mesh and patient’s hand reconstruction surgery took place at Greenslopes Private Hospital in Queensland.
