An amazing Australian first surgery performed by Sydney Surgeon Dr Joe Dusseldorp who needed both 3D Scanning and 3D Printing to provide Maxim followed closely by Sebastian with a 3D printed ear!

The custom 3D printed technique has several advantages over the rib technique, can be performed with less pain and time in hospital, it only requires one stage, and it can be performed at a younger age (often being completed prior to starting school).
