milling
Explanation:
Moulding can be used with reference to wood shaping.

However, your text clearly deals with human bones.

Here is a passage from a Internet hit.
"An innovation in the preparation of the distal femur for a total knee arthroplasty.OptiMill is the first system that allows the surgeon to make all the necessary cuts in one pass.
The MILLING procedure consists of three basic steps. (1) Assembly of the milling instruments, (2) Alignment on the distal femur & (3) milling the bone.

reaming


Explanation:
another term I have come across in orthopedic surgery texts is ream, reamer, reaming. I believe it may mean the same thing as milling in this context.

See
http://www.ortho.uab.edu/news/modhip.htm

it has both terms, ream and mill
