Bovie Medical today is a leading maker of medical devices and supplies as well as the developer of J-Plasma®, a patented new plasma-based surgical product that is a transformational tool for surgeons.
The company was born in the late 1970s as a manufacturer of disposable penlights for the medical industry. The success of this line prompted the development and manufacture of battery-operated, tubular products, with the same type of assembly manufacturing technologies. A new line of cauteries was also a success.
Good design and manufacturing combined with smart marketing and excellent customer service moved the company forward.
As Bovie Medical grew, requests from the industry drove our design and development teams to manufacture and distribute additional products. Bovie Medical now sets the standard for surgical center and hospital-based electrosurgical generators and accessories with a full range of state-of-the-art models.
In the late 1990’s Bovie acquired the rights to J-Plasma which utilizes a gas ionization process to produce a stable, focused beam of plasma that provides surgeons with greater precision, minimal invasiveness and an absence of conductive currents through the patient during surgery.
With further development to included the addition of a retractable blade, which allows it to function as a cutting tool that leaves behind almost no collateral thermal injury.
Still in the early stages of commercialization, we believe J-Plasma will be a transformational product across a wide range of surgical specialties.
Today, the legacy of Bovie continues as we design and develop the most advanced electrosurgery generators and accessories and advanced energy devices to meet the needs of today’s surgeon.
