“Love Arbutus Medical's oscillating saw! About 1/3 the cost of other oscillating saws on the market and works great! The linen cover for the saw allows for sterile handling intra-op. and allows for easy post-op. clean-up.
Great customer service and follow-up from the staff at Arbutus Medical. They really seemed to care about the quality of their product and making sure that it met the needs of the physicians who used it. Definitely worth the purchase!”

"The [DrillCover Hex] drill from Arbutus Medical matches the speed, torque and ergonomics of a surgical drill, and will provide the veterinary surgeons of Saving the Survivors with an effective and advanced solution to treat various animals, especially rhino, under field conditions. While the drill is battery operated and lightweight, it is still a robust piece of equipment that can be used in the African bush under challenging circumstances."
Dr. Johan Marais

“Altogether this drill has been a great investment for our hospital. The ease of use, maintenance and reliability has made orthopedic surgery pleasurable again…I would strongly urge any veterinarian considering adding orthopedic services, or expanding an existing service, to consider this amazing drill. Again, great job Arbutus Medical!"

"I had the opportunity to use the SawCover on a wedge resection medial patellar luxation surgery on a yorkie today. A procedure I had previously done using a handsaw and chisel and mallet which used to take approximately 5-10 minutes, took me a mere seconds and enabled me to perform the surgery with a smaller incision. It was so user-friendly to assemble and use. I was very impressed!”
