Tevido's Laura Bosworth chats to NotImpossibleNow.com about her company's plans to use a patient's own living tissue to 3D-print nipples for women who've undergone a mastectomy.

Tevido BioDevices is making progress with 3D-printing human tissue cells into the realistic shapes of nipples for breast cancer (mastectomy operation) patients.

The company's intention is that, by using the real tissue of the patient, the chances of complication arising from the implant are lowered, and the results are more natural, thereby using 3D-printing technology to give a more personal approach to the breast reconstruction process.

We took a momentary opportunity while at SxSW V2V 2014 innovation conference in Las Vegas to speak with Laura Bosworth, and found Tevido truly has patients' interests at heart.
