Piezosurgery

A revolution in bone surgery

Mectron Piezosurgery is a state-of-the-art ultrasonic bone dissector. Piezosurgery’s technology utilises micro-vibrations which allow for intricate bone dissection in confined anatomy, yielding significant benefits in various applications.

Surgeon Benefits

  • Selective Cut: The micro-vibrations generate an effective cutting action on mineralised tissue, reducing the risk of soft tissue damage (dura, nerves and vessels).¹
  • Micrometric Cut: The micro-vibrations allow perfect control of the cutting action (5), resulting in very precise, small bone incisions and minimal bone loss (4).
  • Cavitation Effect: The micro-vibrations generate a cold cut causing no thermal injury to the bone, reducing the risk of bone necrosis and providing a blood-free surgical site.²
  • Single-use surgical inserts: A new dissection tip guarantees a precise cut every time.

 

Patient Benefits

  • Bone Healing: The micro-vibrations reduce inflammatory cells on the bone and promote osteoblast production, resulting in faster bone healing.²
  • Soft-Tissue Healing: Protecting the integrity of soft tissues during surgery reduces postoperative swelling and discomfort.³
