Precision and hemostasis are a crucial part of a thyroidectomy, and having the right instruments available can make a large impact on the post-op pain and recovery time of your patient, as well as your total time in the OR.
Our HARMONIC FOCUS® Curved Shears offers just this kind of precise cutting. The curved blade allows you to cut and coagulate vessels and tissue at the same time. And with fewer instrument exchanges, they can reduce time spent in the OR by as much as 30 minutes.*
