Jefferson docs in Haiti look to 3D printing to speed up surgeries
A team of Thomas Jefferson University doctors have started using 3-D printed models to speed up surgeries in Haiti. They arrived there Wednesday on a mission trip and have until Sunday to perform a dozen reconstructive head and neck surgeries. Robert S. Pugliese, Jefferson Health Design Lab director of innovation design, said these trips have been going on for about five years, relying on limited fundraising efforts. Doctors are always constrained by time and resources, he said.
