In this video, Dr. Bertalan Mesko discusses a much-talked-about, futuristic medical trend: 3D or bio-printing, one of the biggest healthcare buzzwords of recent years, from the point of view of creating new bones.

Just as in the case of technologies like nanotech, or genetic engineering, bio-printing is being touted as a solution to a wide range of today’s health challenges, says Mesko.

However, he cautions, while the huge potential of bio-printing in healthcare does indeed hold up, when it comes to generating bones, there are still major challenges to overcome before the technology can be implemented.
