Stratasys (NASDAQ:SSYS) has collaborated with DanaMed to create a 3D printed tool to be used in ACL knee reconstruction surgery.
According to an article on 3D Printer Industry:

Now, Stratasys has collaborated with a new medical company called DanaMed in order to create a 3D printed tool that could change the face of ACL knee reconstruction surgery. A torn ACL, which has caused the end of many a professional athlete’s career, has generally been repaired with the straight-forward, yet error-prone ‘transtibial technique’. While this is the most implemented type of ACL repair, there are obvious disadvantages, such as the difficulty of accurately placing the surgical graft within the natural ACL point. In order to refine this traditional technique, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Dana Piasecki turned to Stratasys and their 3D printing technology to help develop a more successful tool for ACL reconstruction surgery.
