Kerrison Laminectomy Punch – Neuro Surgical Instrument (RI-1-1001)

A Kerrison Laminectomy Punch is a specialized surgical instrument commonly used in neurosurgery and orthopedic spine procedures. Its unique design allows for precise removal of bone and tissue during laminectomies, which are surgeries that involve the removal of part of the vertebral bone called the lamina. The Kerrison Punch typically features a long, thin, and curved shaft with a ratcheting mechanism and a sharp, cutting tip. Surgeons use this instrument to create an opening in the spine’s bony structure, providing access to the spinal cord and nerves. Its precision and effectiveness make it a vital tool in procedures aimed at relieving spinal cord compression and addressing various spine-related conditions.
