Atlanta, GA 7/12/12 (StreetBeat) -- Misonix, Inc. (Nasdaq:MSON), a surgical device company that designs, manufactures and markets innovative therapeutic ultrasonic products worldwide for spine surgery, skull-based surgery, neurosurgery, wound debridement, cosmetic surgery, laparoscopic surgery and other surgical applications, has announced the addition of industry veteran, Christopher A. DeNicola, to its sales management team. Mr. DeNicola joined the Company on July 1, 2012, as Senior Director of Sales – North America for its neurosurgery, spine surgery and orthopedic surgery products. Products in this category are the SonaStar® Ultrasonic Surgical Aspiration System and the BoneScalpel™ Ultrasonic Bone Cutting System.
Mr. DeNicola, who is degreed in Management, has almost 20 years of successful sales management experience in Orthopedic Surgery, Neurosurgery and Podiatric Surgery, with a heavy concentration in Spine Surgery. He has worked with direct, distributor and hybrid sales organizations. Previous employers included EBI (a Biomet Company), Small Bone Innovations and Scient'x USA. The Company expects that Mr. DeNicola's presence will add measurably to the rapid expansion of its Neuro/Orthopedic sales organization.
The SonaStar is used by neurosurgeons and general surgeons for quick and efficient removal of both hard and soft tumors while sparing most vessels. OsteoSculpt™ bone sculpting technology can be employed with the SonaStar to safely remove osseous structures, thus providing access to the surgical site.
The BoneScalpel is a tissue specific osteotomy device capable of safely making precise cuts through bone and hard tissue while largely preserving delicate soft tissue structures. It offers the convenience and speed of a power instrument without the danger associated with rotary sharps. Use of this product is being rapidly accepted by spine and skull-based surgeons on a worldwide basis.

McManus, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix.
