How Does the Material and Surface Topography of an Interbody Fusion Device Affect Bone Growth and Fusion?
Insights from Barbara Boyan, PhD and Paul Slosar, MD.
Wednesday, September 28, 2016 | 12:00 - 1:00pm CDT
Join Barbara Boyan, Ph.D., one of the most cited researchers in biomaterial science, for an exclusive webinar on the role of surface nanotechnology in promoting bone growth and fusion in interbody fusion device constructs. Paul Slosar, M.D., will also discuss clinical outcomes associated with these types of nano-enhanced implants.
Attendees will learn:
- The role of biochemical processes in driving early-stage bone growth
- How implant material and topographies at the micro and nano levels affect osteoblastic differentiation of attachment-dependent cells
- The effect nano-enhanced interbody fusion devices have on clinical outcomes
