Most micro-dissection needles are used in conjunction with RF generators to dissect soft tissue. The needles cut tissue while concurrently coagulate blood vessels, reduce blood loss and leave a cleaner surgical field. They are used for numerous surgical applications including:

  • Tonsillectomy
  • Intraoral incision
  • Coronal incision
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Neurosurgery
  • Spinal surgery
  • Oral-Maxillofacial surgery
  • Plastic surgery
  • Dermatology

The procedure requires

  • RF generator
  • Patient contact plate
  • Monopolar electrosurgical hand piece
  • Micro-dissection needle (the electrode)
