Biomaterials in Orthopedics
Millions of people around the world suffer from inflammatory and degenerative bone and joint conditions. Surgery is frequently necessary for these diseases, including total joint replacement when the natural joint has degenerated. The use of permanent, temporary, or biodegradable devices is also necessary to treat a number of bone fractures, low back pain, osteoporosis, scoliosis, and other musculoskeletal issues.
In order to perform specific biological functions by replacing or repairing different tissues like bone, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons, or even by providing guidance for bone repair, when necessary, Therefore, orthopedic biomaterials are designed to be inserted into the body as parts of apparatus.
