Freedom of movement in the operating room

The revolutionary design of the Sonicision™ cordless ultrasonic dissection device gives surgeons freedom of movement in the OR – eliminating the frustration of managing cords on a sterile field, while allowing for rapid dissection of tissue and security of hemostasis.1,2

In addition, the intuitive dual-mode energy activation control offers minimum and maximum power modes within one button for easy transition between energy modes, further enhancing surgeon focus on the patient.1

The reusable hand-held generator working in concert with the reusable battery produces ultrasonic energy that delivers a variety of tissue effects. The ability to take the sophistication of a generator and shrink it down to easily fit in the palm of your hand is real innovation that frees the surgeon from the need to connect the device to a bulky generator outside of the surgical field.
