This study involved modification of the surface of Ti by micro-arc oxidation (MAO). A rough and porous oxide film with good wettability was formed on the Ti surface. This MAO-treated film exhibited a meta-amorphous structure comprising crystalline anatase and rutile TiO2 as well as amorphous phases. In addition, the incorporation of Ca and P in the MAO-treated film was induced by micro-arc discharge. The biological responses of the MAO-treated surfaces were evaluated by observing the adhesion of MG63 osteoblast-like cells and platelets. The MAO-treated Ti had a considerably better biocompatibility and blood compatibility than untreated Ti.
