A bone lever is formed of a handle and a blade. The blade is curved, serrated transversley and is non sharp to prevent inuring the periosteum.
Bone levers are used in orthopedic procedures to elevate bones during internal fixation of fractures.They are of different sizes and shapes to fit the targeted bone. The largest size is typically used to elevate the femur. Surtex instruments manufactures bone levers in several popular patterns. An example is Hohmann Bone Lever Narrow Tip with its relatively long and narrow tip that suits elevation of bones with thinner shafts. Our bone levers are precision manufactured with smooth and blunt blades in various patterns and tip sizes to fulfill the needs of various orthopedic surgical procedures.
