Medical implants

Many orthopedic implants such as knee, hip and other joint replacements, as well as the associated screws, plates and wires are typically made from stainless steel. Implantable medical devices, such as stents or pacemakers have driven many advances in modern health. As these devices and implants are used within the body, it is essential that they are non-toxic and biocompatible. Implantable devices rely on a range of stainless steels to provide the safety and reliability they need.
