About this Textbook

Bioceramics: Properties, Characterizations, and Applications is a general introduction to the uses of ceramics and glasses in the human body for the purposes of aiding, healing, correcting deformities, and restoring lost function. With over 35 years experience, the author developed the text as an outgrowth of a course for senior and beginning graduate students in biomedical engineering and will emphasize the fundamentals and applications in modern implant fabrication, and will also deal with tissue engineering scaffolds made of ceramics.
Organized as a textbook for the student needing to acquire the core competencies, it will meet the demands of advanced undergraduate or graduate coursework in bioceramics, biomaterials, biomedical engineering, and biophysics.
Key Features:
 Detailed illustrations
 Example problems to provide the student with hands-on experience with concepts
 Extensive appendices and tutorial materials on new developments including expanded treatment of ceramic materials and implants
 Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
 Detailed references for further reading

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This work by Park … offers an in-depth look at the field of bioceramics. … Bioceramics makes good use of figures, including color images, cartoon schematics, microscope images, and quantitative graphs, which address biology, chemistry, and engineering concepts. … This volume will serve well as a graduate-level resource within the curriculum of a material science and engineering department, or as a supplemental monograph for a course in biomaterials within a biomedical engineering curriculum. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and faculty." (C. A. Reinhart-King, Choice, Vol. 46 (11), July, 2009)
