Nanomedicine aspires to supply a valuable set of research tools and clinically functional devices in the near future. In this regard, significant advances and new commercial applications are expected in pharmaceutical and orthopedic industries such as advanced drug delivery systems, new therapies, and smart implant systems. For advanced orthopedic implant technologies, appropriate nanoscale surface modifications along with sensor integrated smart implant are highly effective strategies for pain relief and to get better biofunctionality. Accordingly, the intelligent implants are able to provide useful information on the patient data and delivery of antiseptic and antibiotic agents during treatment to reduce surgical site infection. It is well established that oxide nanotube implants show a dramatic enhancement in new bone formation and gene expression combined with bone development and remodeling on flat surfaces. Nevertheless, scientific and clinical understanding of smart mixed oxide nanotubular arrays and their potential applications in nanomedicine are still in progress. There is noteworthy verification that stem cells can be seeded into mixed oxide nanotubular arrays for growth and extension.
