1Sağlık Bilimleri Üniversitesi Gülhane Eğitim ve Araştırma Hastanesi, Beyin ve Sinir Cerrahisi Kliniği, Ankara, Türkiye It is not surprising that 3D printers, which are included in all areas of life with the developing technology in recent years, are used more and more in the field of medicine. This situation has also triggered the development of personalized surgery and implant technologies. We have organized a compilation where we talked about the custom-made anatomical models, custom-made surgical guides and custom-made implants, which are frequently used in neurosurgery practice, and their advantages and disadvantages. While reduced surgical time, improved medical outcomes, and reduced radiation exposure are seen as advantages, the increased cost is seen as a disadvantage that cannot be ignored. The use of personalized implants in the right patient with the appropriate indication will not only benefit the patient, but will also guide the surgeon who will perform the procedure.
