Are there synthetic bones that heal?

From older topics I've read that our bone composition exhibits an excellent balance of strength and lightness, for which we have billions of years of evolution to thank. But are there synthetic bones that have the capability of healing like our natural ones, and are non-calcium based?

There are man-made materials which "heal" themselves ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-healing_plastic
