Research Facts
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; this item was donated by Dr. William H. Wayne from Ottawa, Ontario; in 1910, it was found that when currents were applied to tumours, the cancer cells were killed by the heat; the field of operation remained free of blood, due to the cauterization; generators were improved upon and soon a scalpel-like electrode could cauterize even soft and delicate tissues, like the brain, and effectively remove cancerous cells; a more effective unit, the Bovie electrosurgical unit, was introduced in 1926, invented by Dr. Harvey Cushing and physicist William T. Bovie; Bovie has become the generic name for electrosurgical units
