Sait Bakir, MD

This device (Hydrodissector hook) (Sait’s Hook) designed for dissect and cut tissue safely without damaging underlying tissues. This hook have a canal inside (like injection needles) so we can inject water from the tip hole of the hook. Before cutting or cautering surgeon inject water so it creates a safe working space.This prevents us from unwanted thermal injury. Hydrodissection helps create safe dissection plane. Also it can be use for irrigation for small areas by using the hook.
