Dr. D. Grant Honeyman; Kny-Scheerer catalogue, 1915, p. 2179; "Bone Graft Surgery in Disease, Injury, and Deformity," by Fred A. Albee, 1940, ch. 2; CD #UHN
Research Facts
Named after Dr. F.H. Albee (1876-1948), a New York surgeon, ca. 1915. This is an early application of power tools to surgery; Albee copied tools used by cabinetmakers to make precision cuts and joints; according to Dr. Honeyman (Brantford Clinic), it would have been most unsafe electrically, particularly since it was used at a time when explosive anaesthetics were being employed; use of power tools in orthopedic surgery improved the speed and accuracy of cutting bone, reduced, operating time, lessened the shock to the patient, and enabled more intricate reconstruction to be done.
