The DYONICS 5.5-mm BONECUTTER ELECTROBLADE Resector is an all-in-one device for treating one of the most common sources of shoulder pain, subacromial impingement. The resector combines patented technologies to do the work of three separate devices: a mechanical shaver for soft tissue removal, a burr to smooth bone and a radiofrequency (RF) probe to seal blood vessels at the surgery site. By eliminating the need for the surgeon to constantly change instruments during the arthroscopic procedure, the new resector can drastically reduce procedure time.
