Picture mectron Piezosurgery touch

The future of bone surgery?

When mectron introduced PIEZOSURGERY® in 2001, the technology was revolutionary for bone surgery: a device which provided precision, safety, perfect ergonomics and the highest quality to surgeons all around the world. Soon the new technology became the benchmark  for bone surgery devices.

In 2011, mectron presents a benchmark again: the new PIEZOSURGERY® touch. Its exclusive black glass touch screen, its easy to handle user interface and features like the new handpiece with rotatable LED lift ergonomics in surgery to a completely new level.

So get ready for selecting bone quality and irrigation flow rate at the touch of your finger – get ready for the new PIEZOSURGERY® touch.

Equipment set BASIC 1

  • 1 PIEZOSURGERY® touch unit
  • 1 LED-handpiece, complete with cord
  • 1 torque wrench K8
  • 1 suitcase


With over 12 years of successful clinical research, the original PIEZOSURGERY® method is the only one supported by more than 120 clinical and scientific studies. 


Clinical Advantages

When it comes to cutting bone, you can of course use traditional burs and saws. They do cut bone, too – but they do not differentiate: any soft tissue getting in their way will also be cut.

The special ultrasonic microvibrations of the original PIEZOSURGERY® technique cut bone – and nothing else. No soft tissue is damaged, which allows you to work with a precision that facilitates not only surgery itself, but reduces postoperative discomfort for your patients at the same time.

Micrometric cuts

PIEZOSURGERY ® provides micrometric cuts for minimally invasive surgeries with maximum surgical precision and intra-operative tactile sensation.

Selective cuts

Selective cuts protects any kind of soft tissue. Nerves, vessels and membranes will not be injured while cutting bone. Thus PIEZOSURGERY® offers maximum safety for surgeons and patients.

Cavitation effect

PIEZOSURGERY® offers maximum intra-operative visibility. The cavitation effect of the ultrasonic movements lead to a blood-free surgical site.

patient's benefit

  • soft tissue will be protected, f.e. in lateral sinus lift surgery the risk of perforation is reduced over 80%
  • less swelling after surgery with PIEZOSURGERY®
  • faster and better osseointegration after implant site preparation with PIEZOSURGERY®
  • faster and less traumatic post-operative recovery
