In 2009, Dr Didier Nimal created OsseoMatrix and invented a proprietary process of 3D direct printing of biological ceramics. This breakthrough innovation developed in collaboration with multidisciplinary research teams expert in the field of biology (CNRS), biomaterials (School of Mines) and process engineering (CEA), allows the manufacture of 3rd generation implants. These implants are custom made from patients' CTs to perfectly fit the anatomy of bone loss. Their composition is similar to the mineral bone and their internal porosity is programmed to guide bone healing. Alternative to bone grafts, OsseoMatrix implants are set up using a minimally invasive surgical procedure.
