“Mediflex’s dedication to product innovation, design and quality offers a continuously expanding choice of tools for today’s most challenging surgical demands.” — John R. Bookwalter, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Since Dr. Bookwalter wrote these words in late 2005, we have been dedicated to the most significant design change in our Bookler Table Mounted Retractor Systems since Mediflex began working with him over 30 years ago. By recognizing the needs of Surgeons performing small incision procedures and combining the genius of Dr. Bookwalter’s original designs with other Mediflex innovations, we are proud to offer The Mini-Bookler System for Small Incision, Pediatric and Neo-natal Surgery.

The system is a highly modular design offering a wide range of set-up configuration. The retractor frames are available in both adjustable “wishbone style” and traditional segmented round and oval shaped rings.

The rings, ratchets and blades of the Mini-Bookler System look like the original. However, they are significantly smaller. This gives the surgeon a smaller, lower profile system that still provides the vital exposure that was Dr. Bookwalter’s goal. Additionally, the system is attached to the OR Table with Mediflex’s Flex Arm™ or StrongArm™ Surgical Holders and Positioners. These devices can be oriented to minimize the overall height of the system allowing surgeons to work unencumbered by vertical table posts.

A wide assortment of rings and blades are available for a wide variety of procedures, such as thyroid, carotid, open appendix, open hernia and perineal procedures. The system is also ideal for neo-natal surgery.
