Molly Stevens:
A new way to grow bone

TEDGlobal 2013 · 14:52 · Filmed Jun 2013

What does it take to regrow bone in mass quantities? Typical bone regeneration — wherein bone is taken from a patient’s hip and grafted onto damaged bone elsewhere in the body — is limited and can cause great pain just a few years after operation.
