Bone Repair Biomaterials: Regeneration and Clinical Applications, Second Edition, provides comprehensive reviews on materials science, engineering principles and recent advances. Sections review the fundamentals of bone repair and regeneration, discuss the science and properties of biomaterials used for bone repair, including metals, ceramics, polymers and composites, and discuss clinical applications and considerations, with chapters on such topics as orthopedic surgery, tissue engineering, implant retrieval, and ethics of bone repair biomaterials. This second edition includes more chapters on relevant biomaterials and a greatly expanded section on clinical applications, including bone repair applications in dental surgery, spinal surgery, and maxilo-facial and skull surgery.
In addition, the book features coverage of long-term performance and failure of orthopedic devices. It will be an invaluable resource for researchers, scientists and clinicians concerned with the repair and restoration of bone.

Dr Kendall Pawelec received her PhD from the University of Cambridge, investigating the ice templating process for tissue engineering applications. Since then, she has worked as a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow, in the Netherlands, studying porous biomaterials for bone repair. Currently she is a Research Fellow at the University of Michigan, continuing to examine the impact of material structure on biological responses. She worked with the previous editors organizing the previous edition.
