Orthopedic Power Tools


Solutions that are 100% sterile, affordable, robust and easy to use


DrillCover Hex

The DrillCover Hex is our base model, allowing for hole drilling, such as in fracture fixation procedures and CCL repairs (including lateral suture, TTA and TPLO). This system can be used with the regular 3-Jaw Chuck (for use with pins and round drill bits) as well as with an AO quick connect attachment (for use with half-moon-shaped drill bits).

*Cannulation is not available with this system.

DrillCover PRO

The DrillCover PRO is Arbutus Medical's latest innovation. This drill allows for more precise drilling, due to a new drill-chuck interface design. The DrillCover PRO also allows for cannulation as well as reaming, and can grip both regular drill bits and pins (using the 3-Jaw Chuck) as well as half-moon-shaped drill bits (using the AO quick connect).


SawCover System

The SawCover System is ideal for TTA and FHO procedures, not only providing faster surgery times, but improved patient outcomes compared to use of an osteotome. The SawCover System completes the Arbutus power tool line for osteotomy, amputation, arthroplasty and other applications.

Veterinarian Testimonials


“I have used [similar products] in the past, and the Arbutus model is my hands-down favorite.

Other drills have the chuck adapter simply passing through an un-sealed hole in the cover – not ideal from a sterility perspective. The Arbutus cover has a sealed adapter incorporated into the cover, greatly improving sterility. The cover itself is made of a material that allows very good tactile feel of the drill beneath, and the seal across the bottom is the most secure of any that I have used.

I look forward to years of using this drill for my veterinary orthopedic procedures, and would highly recommend it to anyone who needs a reasonably priced, sterile, and effective surgical drill cover.”

- Ken Gummeson, DVM Aberdeen Veterinary Hospital, Kamloops, Canada



“I have used the Drill Cover System from Arbutus Medical and have found it to be a useful solution for practitioners who do some orthopedic surgery, but cannot justify the more expensive surgical drills.“
