Healthcare engineering has developed an environment in which advancements in the lifesciences are not only possible, but also needed, in order to solve complex biological problems. Different applications of additive manufacturing technology in the medical field were investigated in order to determine the current state of the art and future directions. To demonstrate the advantages of additive manufacturing technology in medical applications, as well as current and potential applications. A literature review-based research on additive manufacturing that is useful in a variety of ways to treat medical conditions has been completed, as well as bibliometric analysis. The study of primary applications of additive manufacturing for medical purposes, as well as their significant achievements, was briefly mentioned. The ongoing study is often divided into categories based on the application of additive manufacturing in medicine, including requirements, accomplishments, and references. The main medical fields where additive manufacturing is used, as well as key sources, aims, and benefits, have been established. The aim of this paper is to conduct a literature review on the medical applications of additive manufacturing and their potential prospects. Medical models that are customised and sourced from the data of a single patient and differ from one patient to the next can be easily updated and printed. Medical AM involves the use of human capital in the fields of reverse engineering, medicine, and biomaterials, as well as the design and manufacture of bones, implants, and other medical devices. Additive Manufacturing has the potential to help solve medical issues while also benefiting society as a whole.
