Doctors grow organs from patients' own cells

Wow. This is amazing.
The silly part of me asks, will I be able to grow a new brain?
/me hears echoes of Dorothy, "What would you do if you had a brain?"
The serious side of me remembers a close relative who had cancer surgery years ago in which his stomach was removed. Could this type of technology be used to restore 'faulty' organs that have been removed under such circumstances?
