AbstractMedical implant from diferent materials such as metals, ceramics, polymers and composites have gained a lot of research attraction due to wide applications in medical industry for treatment, surgical operations and preparing artifcial body parts. In this work, we highlight a comprehensive review of medical implant mechanism, various types of implant materials, factors afecting the performance of implant and diferent characterization techniques. This review provides an overall summary of the state-of-the-art progress on various interesting and promising material-based medical implant. Finally, few new prospects are explained from the established theoretical and experimental results for real-life applications. This study is expected to promote extended interest of scientists and engineers in recent trend of modern biomaterials based medical implant.
