International ultrasonic surgical device company Misonix educated neurosurgeons and spine surgeons at this year’s annual meeting of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS).
Misonix educated neurosurgeons and spine surgeons at this year’s annual meeting of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS). “The CNS meeting was an excellent opportunity for us to engage our customers and connect with our distribution network,” comments Michael A McManus Jr, president and chief executive officer of Misonix.
At its tradeshow booth, the Misonix team featured two of its ultrasonic therapeutic devices: the BoneScalpel system and the SonaStar aspiration system. The SonaStar system provides precise and effective soft and hard tissue ablation with maximum control during neurosurgery and other various surgical procedures. The BoneScalpel is an ultrasonic device that offers a clean, controlled bone incision while sparing neural elements and reducing blood loss.
At its booth, Misonix hosted several ‘meet the expert’ sessions that were moderated by: Eric J Woodard, New England Baptist Hospital, Boston; Gregory Trost, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI; Nicholas Renaldo, Vassar Brothers Medical Center, Poughkeepsie, NY; and Juan Uribe, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL.
Trost explains: “The CNS meeting was the perfect venue for surgeons to learn about the BoneScalpel and receive a hands-on demonstration showcasing the product’s benefits in spine surgery.”
“The BoneScalpel is an innovative surgical instrument that offers spine surgeons the ability to protect the spinal neural elements when incising and removing bone. The BoneScalpel also improves surgical efficiency while reducing blood loss,” Trost continues. McManus concludes: “The ‘meet the expert’ sessions were well attended and gave surgeons the opportunity to trial the BoneScalpel under the expert guidance of current users.”
