Orthopedic Implants are medical devices manufactured for internal fixation to support a damaged bone or enhance an existing biological structure. An internal fixation is an operation in orthopedics that involves the surgical implementation of implants for the purpose of repairing a bone. This practice was originated in the mid-19th century. An Orthopedic Implant or internal fixator may be made of stainless steel or titanium. The various types of Orthopedic Implants are bone screws and metal plates, pins, rods, Kirschner wires and intramedullary devices such as the Kuntscher nail and interlocking nail, etc.
