Recent developments integrating nanotechnology with electronics and computing are producing a large number of medical devices for health care. In this chapter, we focus on the advances made in the use of coatings to enhance functionality of dental implants, stents, hip prosthesis, and miscellaneous devices. Despite numerous publications the potential for using coatings in the healthcare industry is enormous and yet relatively untapped. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2007, 2016.
