A cap for covering the exposed end of an excised bone including a head adapted to abut the exposed end. The outer surface of the head is free from sharp corners, at least the portion of the head adjacent to the exposed bone end being interspersed with a network of interconnected pores adapted for human tissue to grow therein and anchor the cap to the bone. The cap further includes means for preventing the pores from communicating with the outer surface of the head.
