Unconventional methods of cutting of bone and tissue

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Unconventional methods of cutting based on ultrasonics, laser, and water jet mechanisms that might be used in orthopaedic surgery are discussed. Their advantages include no or little contact with bone or tissue that is to be cut, the application of less mechanical force compared to traditional techniques, and reduction in localised heat effect in the region undergoing surgical cutting. Their limitations and merits are identified.
