Symmetry Surgical Kerrison Rongeur Solutions

Symmetry Surgical has a rich heritage in Kerrison design dating back to the early 1900s. Collaborations between Thomas Codman and Harvey Cushing M.D. yielded unique insight into the needs of surgeons. Dr. Cushing was one of the first surgeons to specialise in neurosurgery and his initial input and designs are evident in modern-day Kerrisons.

Symmetry Sharp Kerrison®

The Symmetry Sharp Kerrison is the only Kerrison rongeur which is supporting surgeons with reliable cutting results without the continuous need for repairs and the logistics behind this process. This new Kerrison rongeur is available with a single-use or alternatively reusable tip which attaches to a reusable handle to ensure the highest possible accuracy and safety.

The challenges of performing precise and complex procedures with dull Kerrisons are well known among neurosurgeons and orthopaedic spine surgeons worldwide. This case study evaluated a new device that utilizes a novel approach to provide sharp, productive bites throughout the entire procedure, allowing the surgeon to complete the procedure safely, accurately, and efficiently.
