Printing out a new hip: Ever since birth, walking had been very painful for Antzelina Kesidi, but she finally found help at the Fresenius Helios hospital in #Hildesheim, northern Germany. Using a new technique, orthopedists at the #hospital had an artificial #hipjoint, made of titanium and measured to precisely fit her, made in a #3D printer. For the first time in her life the Cypriot woman, 40, can now walk pain-free. “I’m so thrilled to finally be able to really romp around with my 10-year-old son,” said Kesidi.
