Description
In 2017, Deborah Stoneburner was in a severe car accident, suffering several injuries, including a crushed ankle bone called the talus. Loyola Medicine orthopaedic surgeon Adam Schiff, MD, successfully replaced the damaged bone with a metal talus bone made with 3D printing technology. "The technology of 3D printing is coming into play in a lot of areas of medicine, particularly orthopaedic surgery," Dr. Schiff said.
