Rebuilding uncle's jaw.

My uncle has been diagnosed with cancer in his gums and part of his jaw on
one side is going to have to be removed, leaving a thin section of jawbone
remaining. I recall awhile back discussion regarding medical applications,
but I can't recall who and what.

Does anyone on the list have information regarding applications that
provide or lead to customized prosthetic devices of a type that would
enable the jawbone to be reinforced/virtually replaced?

He is undergoing surgery as soon as next week, so anything you might have
quickly is appreciated.
