    Dr Shaws scalpel

    Hi;

    I was in on the original development of the scalpel in the mid seventies. At that time the company was known as Oximetrix. very happy to hear that it is in use.

    I always had high hopes for this system and that it would still be in use if I ever had need for it.

    Planning to have knee replacement surgery this summer. Certainly hope a good orthopedic in my area (Sacramento or Elk Grove California) has access to one.

    I was wondering, did you ever consider combining the Shaw Scalpel with standard RF electrosurgery? I just wonder if a more hemostatic effect and easier cutting ability could be had with a heated blade and lower RF electrosurgery power.
