Dr. Adnan Siddiqui, MD, PhD, vice-chairman and professor in the Department of Neurosurgery, says using 3-D replicas of complex brain aneurysms, cardiac conditions, and other complicated medical issues will soon change the way physicians are trained. Siddiqui recently used a 3-D printed replica of a 49-year-old woman’s potentially fatal aneurysm to make trial runs, reducing the actual surgery to just 45 minutes instead of the usual four-to-five hours.
