Osseointegration of Orthopaedic Implants helps product developers at orthopedic implant manufacturers enhance the effectiveness of orthopedic implants and reduce complications, particularly in patients with osteoporotic bones. The book's expert contributors provide cutting-edge information on the latest technologies and advances available. Biomaterial researchers can use the book for basic data in the further development of orthopedic implant materials with better osseointegration. Biomechanical researchers can review related challenges and concepts of osseointegration for use in the development of implants. The book is suitable for readers from academia and industry, bridging the knowledge gap between academic based researchers, industrial based engineers, and clinical based surgeons.

Key Features

  • Reviews and discusses all aspects of orthopedic implant osseointegration
  • Provides conceptual implants for bone fracture fixation and joint replacement
  • Offers novel ideas for the development of orthopedic implants with superior osseointegration


Product Developers at orthopaedic implant manufacturers, Biomechanical researchers, Biomaterial researchers, Biomedical engineering lecturers and students, Medical implants institutes

About the Author

Amirhossein Goharian

Amirhossein Goharian is a senior engineer in the orthopedic implant industry. He has challenged and improved various engineering areas of orthopedic implants since January 2009. He has worked in all areas of the product development process including design, engineering, testing, computational analysis, quality control, and clinical improvement. He is highly enthusiastic in the field of orthopedic implant development, and attempts to analyze the various engineering challenges using scientific fundamentals. His rigorous studies in conjunction with practical experiences have motivated him to become an author, through which he could share his in-depth knowledge in the engineering and scientific aspects of orthopedic implants from design conception to clinical use. He has previously authored 'Trauma Plating Systems' and 'Osseointegration of Orthopedic Implants' (both published by Elsevier) and 'Osseoconductive Surface Engineering for Orthopedic Implants' is his third book in the area of orthopedic implants. His main concerns and interests in publishing these books are in providing a comprehensive and updated resource for the effective incorporation of the biomechanical, material, biological, and clinical facets of the orthopedic area while simultaneously optimizing the implant design, technology, and features.
