In this chapter, the current status of metallic biomaterials and the research and development of new-generation metallic biomaterials are discussed. First, the traditional metallic biomaterials are reviewed. The alloy design and properties of the new metallic biomaterials and the new processing technologies used in fabricating porous metallic biomaterials and in grain refining are then discussed. This chapter focuses on the following metallic biomaterials: stainless steels, cobalt (Co)-chromium (Cr) alloys, titanium (Ti) and its alloys, magnesium (mg) alloys, and bulk metallic glasses. Finally, the future trends in new-generation metallic biomaterials are presented.
