That would be more scary.
Would it? If it was me on the table, and the hole needing patch was in my skull, I think I'd rather have the piece being inserted pre-made during the surgical prep phase, then used as a measure/guide, and let lCNC cut a clean hole thats a perfect fit. Healing to useable strength would be many times faster if all the bone growth needed was that quite precisely fitted line. There is also the possibility of fitting dovetailed keys to help retain it while it is healing. Sucking up the debris from the machining would be a bigger problem than the machining itself. In fact, let that be somebody's "next big thing". And far less dangerous than the early bovee knives were.
