Misonix to host BoneScalpel sessions at NASS 2014


Misonix will exhibit and host several educational panels led by prominent spine surgeons at the North American Spine Society (NASS) annual meeting in San Francisco, USA taking place November 12–14, 2014. 

“We will be demonstrating the BoneScalpel to confirm to surgeons the value ultrasonic technology can add to spine surgery,” says Michael A McManus Jr, Misonix’s president and chief executive officer.

At its tradeshow booth (#510), Misonix will be featuring the BoneScalpel system, an ultrasonic device that features a precise bone cutting instrument that enables surgeons to make bone incisions and removal, and that also spares soft tissue.

To detail the benefits of the BoneScalpel in spine surgery, Misonix will be hosting several ‘Meet the Expert’ sessions, which will be moderated by several top spine surgeons: Nicholas Renaldo, Vassar Brothers Medical Center, Poughkeepsie, NY, Justin Bird, Houston, TX, Connor Telles, Sierra Pacific Orthopedics, Fresno, CA, Harvey Smith, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA and Greg Mundis, Scripps Clinic Orthopedic Surgery, San Diego, CA.

Mundis explains: “During the ’Meet the Expert’ sessions, spine surgeons will learn several applications of the BoneScalpel in spine surgery along with the benefits this unique technology offers both surgeons and patients. In my practice, the BoneScalpel provides for improved surgical efficiencies, reduced bleeding and soft tissue protection while offering controlled incising of bone and hard tissue during spinal procedures.”

The Bone Scalpel will also be featured at the NASS solutions showcase (Booth #2504) on Thursday 13 November at 12:30pm.
