Misonix, a manufacturer of laboratory instruments, has displayed its BoneScalpel ultrasonic bone cutting system.

The BoneScalpel is a tissue specific osteotomy device capable of making precise cuts through bone and hard tissue while largely preserving delicate soft tissue structures.

It also provides the convenience and speed of a power instrument while minimizing the peril associated with rotary sharps.

Misonix president and CEO Michael McManus said their initial experience with orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons performing spinal deformity surgery using BoneScalpel has been very positive.

Misonix develops ultrasonic medical devices which are used for cosmetic surgery,laparoscopic surgery, neurosurgery, wound debridement and other surgical and medical applications.
