Ultrasonic-assisted bone instrument
Precise on bone, gentle on critical structures
The ultrasonic-assisted bone instrument from Söring was developed specifically for the resection of bone and offers numerous advantages in spinal surgery, e. g. for decompression procedures. The non-rotating technology allows a very precise and fine approach, so that the surgeon can work closely to critical neurovascular spinal structures such as the dura mater. Additional pressure is avoided, which is extremely important when working in already tight spaces. Due to the longitudinal movement of the sonotrode tip there is also no risk of "grabbing".
Another great advantage compared to other instruments is that bone can be removed in individual pieces, as it is not ground. Thus, removed material can be used further for fusion operations. Thereby artificial bone material or bone graft harvesting can be avoided.
"The bone instrument from Söring offers remarkable tissue selectivity and maximum safety for technically demanding operations on the spine without compromising ablation performance.”

Different sonotrodes for an individual procedure
The surgeon can choose between two sonotrode shapes and lengths and optimize the instrument regarding indication, procedure and access route.
