Improving human response to metal implants
Dr. Stephen Badylak was on the FDA panel investigation which produced a report on biological responses to metal implants. Many people have metal plates, rods, screws and other hardware in our bodies due to active lifestyles and the resulting injuries. But how well does that metal adapt to our bodies and become part of it? Bio medical engineers are always trying to improve these materials and Dr. Badylak talks about this technology.
