Plastics play a vital role in medicine in Canada. The intelligent application of plastics helps save lives and enables breakthrough medical advances. Without plastics, much of modern medical practice would not be possible.
Plastics work hard to protect our health. Nowhere is this more evident than in the doctor’s office or in the operating room.
Plastics have revolutionized modern medical practice and are being used in cutting-edge medical research – in vascular and heart surgery, joint replacement, prosthetics engineering, surgical reconstruction of new tissue, bone replacement, artificial muscle and organs.
