1,000th 3-D Print Patient Treated at Henry Ford Health System


A 72-year-old woman from northern Michigan became Henry Ford Health System’s 1,000th patient treated with the aid of 3-D printing technology.

Cardiologist Dee Dee Wang, M.D., imaging expert and medical director of 3-D printing at Henry Ford Innovations, helped design the print used to position the patient’s new mitral heart valve on March 27.

“When you hold it in your hand it becomes more intuitive rather than just on a screen,” said Wang. “Our brains understand that better, and that’s invaluable for a surgeon going into a surgery or a cardiologist going into a procedure.”
