Mayo Clinic surgeons perform complete facial reconstruction with help of 3D printing

Surgeons at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota have performed a complete facial reconstruction of a 32-year-old male, thanks in part to 3D printing.

Andy Sandness was in his early twenties when he attempted to take his own life with a high-powered rifle. Though he failed in his attempt, one which he has regretted ever since, Andy had to live with severe facial injuries for ten years.
