In an Australian-first reconstruction, a cancer survivor has been fitted with a 3D-printed jaw and teeth after her face was disfigured when doctors removed a cancer growth.
It's an outstanding health innovation, to help rebuild this Australian woman's smile.
She's a cancer survivor, and the first in the country to have a 3D-printed jaw surgically implanted.
Anelia Myburgh lost most of her original jaw when doctors removed a cancer growing in her upper jaw bone.
The surgery was a success and the cancer was removed, but the procedure left her face disfigured.
It left her feeling self-conscious and uncomfortable in social situations.
But now, thanks to this marvel of medical innovation, she hopes to be able to return to a normal life once again.
