Meet the Planatome Blade
Ordinary Outcomes Become Extraordinary With Planatome Surgical Blades
The Planatome Polished Blade is designed for wound healing:
The current, standard blade was introduced over 100 years ago. You need a surgical blade that meets this century’s expectations. Engineered with robotic polishing, the Planatome Surgical Blade is the hallmark of twenty-first century precision tools.
Your community trusts your practice. Your patients trust you. You trust your tools. A surgical blade worthy of your trust should check all the boxes for quality care.
• Cleaner incisions
• Minimized tissue & nerve damage
• Minimized risk of infection
• Reduced bleeding
• Improved wound strength
• 90% wound closure at 24 hrs
One surgeon performed a multi-hour procedure that normally would go through a couple of dozen blades:
A Surgical Blade Made for Our Times.
Real patient outcomes. Real peer reviews.

“Better ergonomics – ease of use to create incision; good feel, clean incision. Clean incision is a better cut. More durable means using fewer blades. As an example, I performed a bilateral thigh lift with one Planatome vs 3-4 standard scalpels. It’s a paradigm shift on how you use a blade.”

“There is a clear difference. I used only one #10 and one #15 Planatome blade for a breast reduction, which usually requires 5-10 regular blades per case. The handling characteristics are much better. It’s weird since most of us just take it for granted that a blade is a blade, but there is a clear difference.”

“Love the blades! Definitely better than the standard blades that I’ve been using! They feel sturdier and don’t bend as easily. Cut and carve with less effort and greater precision, as you can cut with more gentle pressure. Definitively last longer! During Rhinoplasty, when cutting and shaping cartilage, I go through 4 blades on average, and I used one Planatome. During intra-oral surgery when cutting down to bone, the blades don’t dull like the standard blades, and they continue to cut with sharpness and precision. For example, during 3rd molar surgery I can use one single blade throughout the entire case without having to switch.”

“Love the precision and consistency of the Planatome blades. Precision is the key to Aesthetic Surgery and the consistency helps to minimize the patient to patient variation we see in our practice. Definitely get less bleeding which help my visibility in creating intricate incisions on the eyelid.”
Frank Agullo, MD, FACS
“Until now, we have been limited in taking care of surgical scars until after we make the incision. Suture technique and material, taping, scar gels, microneedling, and lasers can all help improve the scars previously made. With Planatome® polished scalpel blades I can minimize the scar by minimizing trauma in a smooth and precise manner to exclusively use Planatome.”

The Planatome Blade is evidence-based surgical advancement in your hands.
Prevent Nerve Damage and Minimize Scarring. Clinical research confirms that robotic-finished surgical blades reduce the area and width of scar formation in subjects at regular time intervals. The more precise the cut, the less nerve endings are sheared or crushed. The Planatome Surgical Blade closely transections nerve endings, keeping more of the nerve’s structural integrity intact and aligned. Smaller surface area damage allows the nerve to repair and regenerate faster than traditional surgical blades. Short distance and fast repair of the nerves keeps inflammation low and reduces the risk of blood clots. Clinical research results continue to support the use of highly polished blades for precise incisions to keep the body focused on healing rather than fighting infection. Additional clinical research will examine the rates of functional nerve recovery using the Planatome Surgical Blade.
These scar comparisons, between the nano-perfected Planatome scalpel blade and a standard scalpel blade, illustrate the collagen deposition and reorganization from each incision. Planatome blade incisions show a more uniform collagen deposition and produce a better scar due to faster collagen reorganization from a reduction in tissue disruption.
