FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Sept. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Misonix, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSON), an international surgical device company that designs, manufactures and markets innovative therapeutic ultrasonic products for spine surgery, neurosurgery, wound debridement, skull based surgery, laparoscopic surgery and other surgical applications, announced its participation at the recent Congress of Neurological Surgeons ("CNS") Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA, which took place on September 24-28, 2016.
At this year's CNS meeting, Misonix featured its BoneScalpel with ultrasonic technology and its newest product, the SonaStar Ultrasonic Surgical Aspiration System. The CNS meeting represents a premier forum for neurosurgeons and residents to share best practices and learn about the newest procedures, approaches, and technologies in all neurosurgical subspecialties. There were more than 2,000 attendees at this year's event. Activity at the Misonix exhibit was noticeably greater over this year's three-day period compared to the 2015 CNS event. Visitors to the exhibit were introduced to the BoneScalpel and SonaStar systems and provided the opportunity for hands-on demonstrations.
BoneScalpel with ultrasonic technology is being increasingly adopted by spine surgeons for the purpose of making precise and safe bone cuts during challenging spine surgeries. Common surgical applications successfully treated with BoneScalpel include deformity cases, laminectomies and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion ("TLIF") procedures. The SonaStar Ultrasonic Aspirator is an advanced ultrasonic aspiration system which enables efficient, precise soft tissue aspiration and powerful removal of fibrous and osseous structures as required.
"The CNS Meeting is an important meeting for Misonix as we look to further expand our commercial footprint in the neurosurgery community and more broadly introduce our ultrasound technologies. I am pleased to see that a substantial number of neurosurgeons who visited with our onsite team in the exhibit have already requested system evaluations at their respective institutions," said Scott Ludecker, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing.
Commenting further, Stavros Vizirgianakis, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Misonix, offered, "We're excited to see the significant level of interest surgeons are exhibiting toward our unique platform technologies. Events like the CNS meeting are outstanding forums to allow new surgeons to gain hands-on experience with our products."
