In an Australian-first, a cancer survivor was fitted with 3D-printed jaw and teeth after her face was disfigured when doctors removed cancer growth.
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 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.
A remarkable medical innovation that, for this patient, means the simple act of walking down the street can once again be an entirely unremarkable experience.
