Electrosurgical Generator Options

Origins of electrosurgery
Did you know that development of the first commercial electrosurgical device is credited to Dr. William T. Bovie, who worked on it from 1914 to 1927 at Harvard University?  The first use of an electrosurgical generator in operating room occurred on October 1, 1926 in a surgery performed by Dr. Harvey Cushing.

The low-powered hyfrecator, manufactured by the Birtcher Corporation of Los Angeles, for electrosurgery performed on conscious patients in an office setting was in 1940.  The word Hyfrecator® is a brand name derived from “high-frequency eradicator.”  However, a number of manufacturers now produce Hyfrecators and the term, with a lower-case “h,” has since come to be used generically to refer to any dedicated non-ground-return electrosurgical apparatus.

Ganim Medical’s pre-owned and refurbished electrosurgical units
At Ganim Medical, we offer pre-owned and refurbished medical equipment that permits healthcare facilities to use the latest technology for patient treatment, without breaking the bank.  Refurbished medical equipment can be the answer to your needs, instead of making large capital investments in new devices that can become quickly outdated.  Our electrosurgical units come refurbished, rebuilt, and repainted, and include a standard 90-day warranty.

Conmed Excalibur Plus PC Electrosurgical Unit (Pre-Owned) $2,900
This device features the powerful isolated ESU available, allowing the Surgeon to adjust power settings from the surgical field with a standard ES pencil.  The Excalibur Plus PC-patented controlled output voltage in CUT maintains minimum necessary voltage for smooth cutting through various impedance tissues with minimal thermal damage.  This electrosurgical generator includes cut, coag, bipolar and blend.

Conmed Hyfrecator 2000 Electrosurgical Unit (Pre-Owned) $700
Features include a memory to store up to three power settings.  The remote-control, hand- switching pencil can change power settings while maintaining the sterile field and decreasing procedure time.  The dual microprocessors permit (1) controlling the function and output of the hyfrecator, (2) termination activation if a hazard or safety issue is detected.  This device is a cost-effective alternative to various laser procedures.

Conmed Sabre 2400 Electrosurgical Unit (Pre-Owned/Refurbished) $1,800
This high-power electrosurgical unit has a monopolar foot pedal.  The unit is designed to accommodate the needs of all surgical procedures.  It features independent monopolar outputs, enhanced bipolar performance, and can be programmed for standardization.  It also combines automatic feedback circuitry and visual displays to provide the most sensitive contact quality monitoring system available today.

ValleyLab Force 2 Electrosurgical Unit (Pre-Owned/Refurbished) $3,900
The ValleyLab Force 2 electrosurgical generator provides cutting and coagulation in monopolar or bipolar outputs.  The unit offers high-performance capabilities in a multipurpose generator, while featuring flexibility through varying degrees of homeostasis.  The operator can choose one of three preset modes: simultaneous independent coagulation, low-voltage coagulation, and Valleylab REM™ safety, which substantially reduce the risk of patient burns at the return electrode site.
