From heart transplantation to fixtures in bones, scientists now achieved impeccable landmarks in the field of medicine and health. Despite the settings and fixtures, as of now, scientists didn’t come up with any concept in which the body parts are artificially made and replaced the original ones.

Now, it seems the time has come. From the ancient history of medicine and treatment, several injuries and ailments require people to go through complex procedures which can help them but are also painful. But thanks to the steady progress in medical science, people can look forward to less painful and more effective alternatives to any medical stunt.

For all the good reasons, scientists have naturally developed a human bone in a laboratory for the first time ever, in a breakthrough that may allow people to do away with painful bone graft surgeries; Millions undergo risky bone graft surgeries where a part of the hip is removed for joint replacements or fixing broken bones.

Experts now discovered a way to grow a bone using cells from the patients own bone marrow. By providing 1000 nanokicks a second, researchers caused cells to turn into a bone through vibration. However, the human trials for the bone are still three years away and it will be available for patients within a decade. Graft surgeries which patients are currently required to undergo pose a risk of infections and other issues.

In this process, the stem cells are extracted from the bone marrow which will help in recreating a bone that will naturally within the body and can also be used to create cartilage, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. They are far safer in comparison to chemical soups previously used by scientists to grow bones, as of now, it is believed that it takes time to switch this process into the access, but, will be done soon.
