We’re Not That Far From Being Able to Grow Human Bones in a Lab

“‘Grow your own bone’ might not sound like much of a business slogan, since even children do just that naturally. But EpiBone, a two-year-old company based in Harlem, New York, has adopted the slogan because it sees a big opportunity: Surgeons perform about a million bone grafts in the United States each year, either with the patient’s own bone tissue, necessitating two surgeries, or with synthetic or donated material, which a patient’s body sometimes rejects.”

3D-Printed 'HyperElastic Bone' Could Quickly Mend Breaks

“A cheap and easy to make synthetic bone material has been shown to stimulate new bone growth when implanted in the spines of rats and a monkey's skull, researchers said. Human trials using the biomaterial, called Hyper-Elastic Bone (HB), could begin in the next five years, according to the research team from Northwestern University.”

Bone Growth
http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/body/factfiles/bonegrowth/femur.shtml
“The skeleton of a newborn baby is made up of more than 300 parts, most of which are made of cartilage. Over time, most of this cartilage turns into bone, in a process called ossification. As the baby grows, some of its bones fuse together to form bigger bones.”
