Nowadays, increase in number of orthopedic surgery accelerates global interest in the world orthopedic industry. Apart from the increased number of the surgery, the rapid recovery becomes very important following the initial operations. One of the common problem for the patients is the biocompatibility between the implant and tissue [1-3]. In this study, we aimed to improve attachment of the implant to the tissue in addition to provide high biocompatibility. After preparing a scaffold by using SiN subsequently we have coated with fine gelatine nanofibers. SiN is one of the most commonly used bioactive ceramic class, and also its biocompatibility is good enough.
