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.” Symmetry Surgical acquired Bovie Medical and now supplies the Bovie products.
