Bioceramics play an important role in repairing and regenerating defective or damaged bone. Annually, more than 500,000 bone graft procedures are performed in the United States and approximately 2.2 million are conducted worldwide. Advanced Bioactive Inorganic Materials for Bone Regeneration and Drug Delivery reviews the latest advances in the field of bioceramics. The book summarizes innovative concepts, bioceramic design, and methods for material synthesis and drug delivery.
Offering guidance for biomedical engineering researchers and material scientists, the book explores:
A comprehensive survey of the research progress of bioceramics and their applications in bone repair and regeneration, this volume is designed to enhance study and career development for those in this field and to facilitate further research and opportunities for new solutions.
