About this Textbook

Biomaterials, an Introduction is intended as a general introduction to the uses of artificial materials in the human body for the purposes of aiding healing, correcting deformities, and restoring lost function.

Enhancing on the field developments since the successful last edition, Biomaterials, an Introduction continues in its tradition as an outgrowth of an undergraduate course for senior students in biomedical engineering developed by the authors With 60 years of combined experience, the authors have emphasized the fundamental materials science, structure-property relationships and biological responses as a foundation for a wide array of biomaterials applications.

 

Key Features:

  • New detailed illustrations
  • Example problems to provide the student with hands-on experience with concepts
  • Extensive tutorial materials on new developments in spinal implants and fixation techniques and theory, including systematic overage of orthopedic implants, and expanded treatment of ceramic materials and implants
  • New topics included on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
  • Approximately 1900 references to additional reading,

Organized as a textbook for the student needing to acquire the core competencies, Biomaterials, an Introduction will meet the demands of advanced undergraduate or graduate coursework in biomaterials, biomedical engineering, and biophysics.
