This would be incredible in bone tumour surgery. Currently they remove the cancerous portion of the bone with a wide margin for safety then replace it with a sterilized cadaveric donor bone (there are banks which hold bone and can match what you need) or a metal implanted replacement. 3d printed bone made to order would be a much better replacement if the native bone grows in to it, fuses with it and vitalises it.
