The first use of the Bovie® electrosurgical generator in an operating room was on October 1, 1926, at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. A few days earlier (September 28, 1926) Dr. Cushing had been unsuccessful in removing a mass from a patient’s head due to its
highly vascular nature. In Dr. Cushing’s notes from October 1st, “…with Dr. Bovie’s help I proceeded to take off most satisfactorily the remaining portion of tumor with practically none of the bleeding which was occasioned in the preceding operation.” Bovie is now a part of Symmetry Surgical and has expanded into Cryosurgery.
