FARMINGDALE, N.Y., June 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Misonix, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSON), an international ultrasonic surgical device company that designs, manufactures and markets innovative therapeutic ultrasonic instruments for spine surgery, neurosurgery and other surgical specialties, today released its newly-developed 25mm BoneScalpel blade.
The new 25mm BoneScalpel blade now offers surgeons the tool to access previously unreachable anatomy as well as facilitates the cutting and removal of larger boney structures. “We are excited to add this new blade to our portfolio of solutions for the BoneScalpel system,” said Michael A. McManus, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix. “We specifically developed the new 25mm blade in response to our surgeon customers needs to enable the completion of procedures not previously possible. We continue to work with leading surgeons from around the world to identify new opportunities to further expand the clinical utility of BoneScalpel.”
The BoneScalpel is an ultrasonic bone-cutting instrument that provides surgeons a clean, controlled bone incision and removal that is also soft-tissue sparing. “I have used the BoneScalpel extensively over the past several years and I view this technology as a vital piece of equipment for both standard laminectomies and more extensive osteotomies,” said Dr. Paul J. Holman, Director, Neurosurgical Spine Center, Houston Methodist Department of Neurosurgery, Houston, TX. “The BoneScalpel allows for rapid, safe removal of bone with a reduction in bleeding.”
Dr. Holman continued, “The new 25mm blade is an important addition to the choice of available tips. The extra length allows me to use the BoneScalpel for rapid bone removal during complex procedures such as pedicle subtraction osteotomies and vertebrectomies. The amount of local bone that is retained for fusion by using the BoneScalpel is also quite remarkable.”
