On the one hand, this is AMAZING! on the other hand, Mary Shelley wrote about a similar concept with the new science of the day back in 1818.

A British surgeon successfully implanted a 3-D printed pelvis for a man who lost half his pelvis to bone cancer, Madison Beerbohm of Healthpoint Capital reports.
