Advances in Laparoscopic Surgical Procedures

Using the power of ultrasound technology the basis for safe and efficient surgical instrumentation Ethicon Endo-Surgery's ULTRACISION HARMONIC SCALPEL allows surgeons to make incisions with minimal tissue damage and minimal risk to the patient. The ULTRACISION device vibrates at more than 55,000 times per second and is used in less-invasive videoscopic and open surgical procedures, such as gallbladder removal, hernia repair, hysterectomy, bladder neck suspension for urinary stress incontinence and gastroesophageal anti-reflux surgery to treat chronic heartburn.

ULTRACISION offers surgeons one multifunctional instrument that simultaneously cuts tissues and seals blood vessels, and provides the potential for reduced tissue damage in patients. Combined with videoscopic surgery, the ultrasonic device can mean faster recovery and less patient scarring.

The ULTRACISION HARMONIC SCALPEL has been used by thousands of surgeons worldwide in videoscopic and open surgical procedures.

Using ultrasonic technology, the ULTRACISION cuts and seals blood vessels, providing the potential for reduced tissue damage.
