First published in 1992, this revision of a popular textbook features completely updated coverage. The burgeoning field of biomaterials has become strongly interdisciplinary, encompassing new materials and their interactions with the biochemical environment. With sixty-years of combined experience, the authors have learned to emphasize the fundamental materials science, structure-property relationships, and biological responses as a foundation for a wide array of biomaterials applications. The extensively rewritten and updated  Biomaterials: An Introduction , Third Edition, includes a new chapter on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, approximately 1900 references to additional reading, extensive tutorial materials on new developments in spinal implants and fixation techniques and theory, systematic coverage of orthopedic implants, and expanded treatment of ceramic materials and implants. All figures have been redrawn and more examples and problems have been included to provide the student with hands-on experience with the concepts.

Roderic Lakes is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Engineering Physics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He is a Fellow in the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and a Fellow in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). He has won numerous teaching awards and is the author and co-author of more than 194 archival publications; three books, including Viscoelastic Solids and Biomaterials (2nd and 3rd editions, with J. B. Park); and fourteen book chapters. The author's articles in Science and Nature are of particular note as they have led to numerous synergistic publications in a variety of disciplines.
