Mamonova reported here that the existing equipment can grow bone or cartilage and transplant native human tissue, rather than, for example, a metal implant. These technologies require testing for an average of five to seven years.

"And as soon as the law on cellular technology, then it will be later used in the constant practice. But it does bring more technology," — she said.
