A novel surgical prosthetic device having many useful surgical applications comprises a composite structure. The composite consists of a solid metallic material substrate and a porous coating adhered to and extending at least partially over the surface of the substrate. The porous coating has certain critical characteristics, and the individual values depend on the end use to which the device is put. There are described a number of surgical and dental applications.
