USAOP has made several critical breakthroughs in establishing the ultrasound based surgical practice:
A line of surgical tables
A collection of basic operating instruments
A group of proprietary tools specifically designed for MIS (keyhole or percutaneous) tissue repair
The USAOP DeHache surgical table line was created for upper extremity procedures. The products include the small “Hand Stand,” the “DeHache Surgical” upper extremity table and the “DeHache Radiolucent” table. The workhorse of these is the patent-pending “DeHache Surgical” table, which deconstructs upper extremity movement in novel, yet intuitive ways that yield positioning opportunities that are unparalleled in the surgical table industry.
USAOP has invested in the concept of formulating a surgical plan step-by-step that reliably accomplishes preoperative surgical objectives as is customarily required for open procedures. Accordingly, an essential (or basic) set of instruments for ultrasound-based keyhole surgeries is employed to carry-out most of the precision cutting, debriding, sewing and grasping. The tool set will be intuitive for proceduralists that already perform open or arthroscopic surgery. The metal and plastic materials are of the finest quality for performance and durability.
Other advances by USAOP include a variety of proprietary instruments unique to the ultrasound based keyhole procedure. A patented rotational blade for tunnel (carpal tunnel, tarsal tunnel, cubital tunnel and others) simplifies subdermal/subfascial cutting techniques. The patent-pending Keyhole/entry tools (e.g. the “FLEA”) refine a desired surgical approach and quickly prepares the remote operating field. The USAOP patent-pending “StringBlade” surgical tools advance general “all-purpose” cutting and sewing with a breakthrough anatomic perspective.
