Biological safety of anodized titanium surface on surgical implants

A. Hello, Lee. I have worked with ASTM standards for stainless steel surgical implants. So I am 99%+ sure that there are ASTM and other standards for titanium implants as well, although I don't know the numbers without looking them up. Try Techstreet.
