Domain Surgical’s FMwand Ferromagnetic Surgical System nabbed the 2012 Gold Award in the Surgical Equipment, Instruments and Supplies category in the 2012 Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) competition.

The single-patient use FMwand seals as it cuts, reducing damage to the surrounding tissue by up to 75 percent and creating a smooth, clean surface. Potential uses include tumor removals, mastectomies, spine and plastic surgery. The wand consists of a wire loop with a special metallic coating that, when activated, heats instantly. As the heated implement contacts tissue, the device cuts and cauterizes. When deactivated, the FM wand cools quickly.
