3D printer used to replace 75 percent of man’s skull

 - Brain injury

The implants, which can be provided in less than two weeks, were approved by the FDA last month.

“Bonehead” puns aside, the video below from Newsy takes up the basics of this procedure, and you can read the original New York Daily News article through the link at the bottom of the page.
