Bovie®: The Most Trusted and Recognized Brand in Electrosurgery

William T Bovie, the inventor of modern electrosurgery, first used an electrosurgical generator in an operating room on October 1, 1926, at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.

A few days earlier (September 28, 1926) Dr. Harvey Cushing, a leading neurosurgeon, had been unsuccessful in removing a mass from a patient’s head due to its highly vascular nature. In Dr. Cushing’s notes from October 1st, “…with Dr. Bovie’s help, I proceeded to take off, most satisfactorily, the remaining portion of tumor with practically none of the bleeding which was occasioned in the preceding operation.”

Over seventy-five years later, Symmetry Surgical proudly continues the work of William T. Bovie – advancing the name you trust with deep clinical expertise, premier customer service and uncompromising quality.
