Medical 3D Printing – An Indian Perspective on Point of Care Micro Labs

India has a vast segment of highly qualified doctors who deal with some of the most complex surgeries known across the world. Yet, with a population of over 1.3 Billion and over 1 Million people undergoing surgeries every year, they are highly short staffed, with a ratio of 1:1600 as opposed to WHO norm of 1:1000 with 80% in urban areas. This gives rise to need of innovation in processes and technology that can make surgeries faster, easier and more precise for the medical team. This allows medical personnel to cater to more patients in the same amount of time, with less chances of failure, thereby avoiding recurrence of the condition. One of the most effective ways to cater to this problem is to obtain dependable pre-operative information and customized tools to ensure the treatment is smooth and effective in the first attempt. Such a large problem statement, with a simple solution, utilizing the disruptive technology of Additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D Printing.
