With the constant evolution of implant technology, and improvement in the production of allograft and bone substitutes, the armamentarium of the orthopaedic surgeon has significantly expanded. In particular, the recent involvement of nanotechnologies opens up the possibilities of new approaches in the interactive interfaces of implants. With many important developments occurring since the first edition of this well-received book, this updated resource informs orthopaedic practitioners on a wide range of biomechanical advances in one complete reference guide.

Biomechanics and Biomaterials in Orthopedics, 2nd edition compiles the most prominent work in the discipline to offer newly-qualified orthopedic surgeons a summary of the fundamental skills that they will need to apply in their day-to-day work, while also updating the knowledge of experienced surgeons. This book covers both basic concepts concerning biomaterials and biomechanics as well as their clinical application and the experience from everyday practical use. This book will be of great value to specialists in orthopedics and traumatology, while also providing an important basis for graduate and postgraduate learning.

"The purpose is to provide orthopedic surgeons with the available body of knowledge regarding biomechanics and the various implanted biomaterials to safely and successfully treat patients. ... This second edition is justified in this very important area of orthopedic surgery. It is an essential addition to the academic orthopedic surgical library." (Samuel J. Chmell, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2016)

"This is a book on bone and tissue engineering in trauma and fracture repair. This book looks carefully at prostheses, experimental and those currently in clinical trials. This is written by European experts in orthpaedic surgery. ... I highly recommend this book for research orthopedics scholars and for residents also." (Joseph J. Grenier,, August, 2016)
