Professor Iain Hutchison spoke to the BBC about the use of 3D printed models to help plan reconstructive surgery.
George Boden, who underwent surgery after a devastating cycling accident, also spoke about his experiences and how he has benefited from this technology.
Mr Boden said: “I was out for a training spin, looked at my watch and the next minute I’d slammed into a piece of machinery around the corner.
“It’s not a good idea to hit something with your chin at 30mph [48kmph], which is exactly what I did. It ripped the whole of my jaw off.”
Professor Iain Hutchison rebuilt My Boden’s face with the help of a 3D printout model.
