The greatest health care innovation Marc has seen in recent history
“I believe 3D-printing will continue to be used to better the lives of patients in a multitude of ways―from prosthetic limbs and valves to medical equipment and organs. 3-D printing also provides an avenue for increasing the accessibility of medical equipment to under-serviced areas. Additionally, 3D-printing can significantly reduce costs associated with certain health care products and procedures.”
