Hello Doctor:

In your opinion, will 3D Printing of Kidneys become a medical option for saving lives in the near future?
How many years for it to happen?

Thank you

I don't see 3D printers directly leading to improvement in organ availability in the foreseeable future. There is probably greater hope expected from regenerative therapies or stem cell applications, though even they are a way's off.
