Osseoconductive Surface Engineering for Orthopedic Implants provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the art of osseointegration based on surface-mediated engineering. It offers a practical approach to the design and development of implant surface engineering, by reviewing and discussing the usability and efficacy of each processing technique. The reader can learn about the variety, characteristics, advantages, challenges, and optimum parameters for each process—enabling targeted selection of coatings and technologies to enhance long-term implant–bone integration.

Key Features

  • Practical and engineering notions in the field of osseoconductive surface engineering are reviewed and discussed using scientific principles and concepts.
  • Engineering cases are analyzed in depth giving a thorough exploration and description of the engineering and scientific concepts for all osseoconductive surface engineering processes.
  • Chapters integrate topics and are organised in such a way as to build on themes and practice.


Biomaterials researchers and biomedical engineers; orthopaedic surgeons; engineering students interested in learning about osseointegration for orthopaedic implants; R&D groups for implant manufacturers.
