More than 50 surgeons trained in minimally invasive BoneScalpel platform at SMISS 2015


Misonix has introduced its BoneScalpel MIS Platform at the annual Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (SMISS) meeting in Las Vegas, USA, training more than 50 surgeons in the system.

“Juan Uribe and the Misonix team have successfully developed a compelling ultrasonic MIS solution,” says Michael A McManus, president and chief executive officer of Misonix.  “We look forward to expanding the BoneScalpel’s growth into MIS spine procedures as the large numbers of surgeons visiting our booth and increased attendance at the hands-on workshop was encouraging.”

Surgeons attending SMISS had the opportunity to participate in hands-on training, which was conducted by Uribe.  Prior to demonstrating the product, Uribe explains the product and its clinical benefits commenting that, “the new BoneScalpel MIS product enables a better, more controlled minimally invasive spine procedure.”

SMISS Co-Chairman, Kornelis Poelstra, The Spine Institute on the Emerald Coast, Destin-Fort Walton, Florida, comments that, “the Misonix BoneScalpel is an interesting technology capable of positively impacting minimally invasive spine surgery and, while I’ve not yet had the opportunity to use it clinically, others have shown encouraging results with it.”
