For anyone working in the field of osseointegration, The Osseointegration Book represents an accumulation of the combined knowledge and experience of the many doctors, scientists, engineers and pioneers who have transformed a controversial area of medicine into accepted practice.
The Osseointegration Book brings together the background and history of osseointegration since Per-Ingvar Brånemark discovered the underlying principles that allowed bone and metal to unite in a way that was previously considered impossible. It presents a cornucopia of information about the current clinical applications of osseointegration from its origins in dentistry to facial reconstruction and orthopedics.
It is the first book to cover osseointegration from its origins, through theory to practice, written by those who have, along with Brånemark, understood the implications of this powerful technique to restore function to the human body and dignity to the human soul.
The Osseointegration Book is not simply a handbook about what can be achieved, but an inspiration to those who want to help restore individuals who, through no fault of their own, have become damaged through circumstance.
