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.
- 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.
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.
