The Misonix Bone Scalpel uses Ultrasonic Frequency Waves (22,500/sec) to cut through bone just as a scalpel would cut through soft tissue. This instrument is used mainly in spine surgery, yet can be used in other specialities as well. The bone scalpel cuts through bone without injuring the soft tissue that is in close proximity, such as vessels & nerves.
