FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Oct. 21, 2013/PRNewswire/ -- Misonix, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSON), an international surgical device company that designs, manufactures and markets innovative therapeutic ultrasonic products for spine surgery, skull based surgery, neurosurgery, wound debridement, cosmetic surgery, laparoscopic surgery and other surgical applications, recently participated in the 2013 Diabetic Limb Salvage Conference held at the JW Marriott in Washington, DC from October 10th – 12th, 2013.
Misonix exhibited and presented the newest addition to its wound care line of devices, the SonicOne® O.R. Ultrasonic Surgical Debridement System. The SonicOne O.R. is an innovative surgical device that allows surgeons to address the challenges chronic wounds present to them, the patient, and the health-care system. SonicOne O.R. establishes a new standard in surgical wound bed preparation, an essential first step in the wound healing process. Use of the SonicOne O.R. system provides controlled tissue removal, decreased healing times, reduced bleeding and a reduction of biofilm.
In addition to exhibiting at the conference, Misonix also participated in two "Gloves on Cadaver Workshops" on Saturday October 12th, where participants were able to use the device in simulated scenarios. The Wound Care 101 workshop was moderated by Katherine J.S. Hubley, RN, CWCN, manager of the Wound Care Clinic at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and the Basic Soft Tissue Technique workshop was moderated by Dr. John S Steinberg, DPM, Associate Professor and Co-Director of Center for Wound Healing at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.
More than 100 surgeons and wound care professionals had an opportunity to trial the SonicOne O.R. technology at the conference. Faculty member Peter A. Blume, DPM, FACFAS, Assistant Clinical Professor of Surgery at the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut stated, "SonicOne O.R. was one of the true highlights in the teaching labs at this year's Diabetic Limb Salvage Conference. It represents one of the newest technologies for wound debridement and wound bed preparation and may finally allow for significant reduction in biofilm production, which inhibits wound healing. The demonstrated safety and efficacy of the SonicOne O.R. ultrasonic debridement system has the potential to finally transform operative wound debridement in a way that we have not seen in the recent past."
Michael A. McManus, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix comments, "We had an extremely busy DLS meeting with approximately 100 attendees visiting our exhibit seeking a product demonstration. The awareness of SonicOne O.R. is rapidly increasing, peer-to-peer referrals are growing and hospitals are increasingly asking for trials in their operating rooms."
