3D printing is revolutionizing the medical device landscape through its ability to rapidly create patient-specific anatomic models, surgical instruments, and implants. Recent advances in 3D printing technology have allowed for the creation of point-of-care (PoC) 3D printing centers. These PoC centers blur the line between healthcare provider, medical center, and device manufacturer, creating regulatory ambiguity.…
