Physician’s Weekly co-hosted another installment of the #PWChat series on Tuesday, March 6, with PW blogger Lars Brouwers, MD, PhD-candidate. He recently drove to Africa to deliver 3D-printed hands to children.

For the interactive discussion, topics included the various ways in which 3D printing can be used in medicine, how Dr. Brouwers and others have and are currently using 3D printing in medicine, the exciting possibilities of 3D printing in medicine, the cost-effectiveness of 3D printing in medicine, and much more!
