Results are provided for a study of the effect of mechanical and ion-beam treatment on titanium alloys surface relief parameters. The possibility is demonstrated of changing component surface roughness over a wide range after comprehensive surface treatment including successive mechanical treatment and irradiation with powerful ion beams in order to improve adhesion properties that expands the range for application of titanium alloys, in particular in medicine. Surface modification and its treatment is a problem for titanium alloys since in view of physical properties titanium alloys exhibit very poor tribological properties and low adhesive strength.
