The tissue engineering of bone requires a fundamental understanding of physiological homeostatic and regenerative principles. This chapter will focus on fundamental principles that biomaterials and scaffold design must fulfill for bone tissue engineering and the approaches to the creation of tissue engineered bone and the distinctly different segments necessary to produce a final product. This chapter will also cover current and new strategies for creating tissue engineered bone.
