Summary This new book synthesizes a wide range of interdisciplinary literatureto provide the state-of-the art of biomedical implants. It discussesmaterials and explains the three basic requirements for implant successfrom a surface engineering perspective: biological compatibility, biomechanical compatibility, morphological compatibility. Biomedical, mechanical, and materials engineers will find this bookindispensable for understanding proper treatment of implant surfacesin order to achieve clinical success. Highlights include: Coverage of surface engineering of polymer, metallic, ceramicand composite i
