We Are Doing all Advanced Laproscopic Surgery Using "Harmonic Scalpel"


           The Harmonic Scalpel is a highly advanced piece of equipment used in a growing number of surgeries and can be added to an arsenal of laparoscopic surgical instruments to increase a surgeon's efficiency and a patient's recovery. The Harmonic Scalpel is actually an entire system that consists of a generator, a foot-pedal and hand switch, a hand-held ultrasonic transducer, and a cutting instrument.


           The Harmonic Scalpel can be used for both open and endoscopic surgical procedures. It works using ultrasound and is able to coagulate blood to create less bleeding than the standard steel scalpel. In addition, blood vessels are sealed at a lower temperature than is needed for electro surgery and lasers. Not only does this reduce the amount of damage to tissues, but it causes less smoke to obscure the surgeon's vision.

          Generally speaking, there are a number of benefits to using the Harmonic Scalpel rather than a steel scalpel or other alternatives. For example, this tool shows a reduction in the amount of lateral thermal tissue damage over other instruments. This also means that there is less charring and desiccation of the blood vessels.

          The innovative design of the Harmonic Scalpel requires fewer instrument exchanges during a procedure than other options. Additionally, there is no electricity running to the patient. Finally, the Harmonic Scalpel allows for greater precision to avoid damaging vital structures of the body.


          Because the Harmonic Scalpel can be used in multiple configurations, it is a great tool for a number of procedures. It has applications in dental, ophthalmic, and other types of surgery.



A short list of procedures that may be enhanced by use of the Harmonic Scalpel includes :

  • Lap Hydatid Cyst.
  • Lap CBD Stone.
  • Lap Nephrectomy.
  • Lap Pyeloplasty.
  • Lap Myomectomy.
  • Lap Ovarian Cystectomy.
  • Lap Ectopic Pregnancy.
  • Lap Vault Prolapse Repair.

              There are many other situations where the use of the Harmonic Scalpel may prove superior to other instruments, as well. In addition to the benefits already mentioned, many patients experience a decreased recovery time. This encourages doctors to utilize the Harmonic Scalpel, as well as other laparoscopic surgical instruments.
