Titanium Definition

Titanium is a strong light-weight metal used in the manufacture of surgical implants. The metal is particularly conducive to use in the human body due to its biocompatibility, resistance to corrosion and weight-bearing strength. It is also MRI compatible. Titanium is used to make screws, plates, rods, and anterior interbody cages used in spinal surgery.
