The Kerrison Rongeur Legacy

By | Kerrison King, Rongeur

The reputation of the acclaimed, German, master-crafted medical instrument advances with the Kerrison King Rongeur.

The small city of Tuttlingen, Germany sits on the edge of the famed Black Forest, on the Danube River, not far from Switzerland. What distinguishes Tuttlingen, however, is not its charming setting, but its reputation as the global leader of surgical instrument manufacturing.

Now, with the debut of the Kerrison King Rongeur, Tuttlingen’s hard-earned reputation for world’s highest quality of surgical instruments moves forward. The Kerrison King Rongeur was designed and developed under the direction of the Stuugard family of Tuttlingen, led by German master craftsman Stuugard. A third-generation medical instrument designer who has crafted instruments for more than 35 years, Mr. Stugaard’s painstaking craftsmanship has been likened to artistry.

In developing the Kerrison King Rongeur, Mr. Stugaard went beyond old world precision craftsmanship. He blended digital technology, high quality German steel molding techniques, and a veteran craftsman’s know-how for coating the instrument to enhance the surgeon’s ability to make smooth cutting actions, minimal hand fatigue, while using the Kerrison King Rongeur during precise surgical procedures.

The result? The Kerrison King Rongeur: a new standard in Kerrison Rongeur instruments.

Mr. Stuugard proudly acknowledges that the Kerrison King Rongeur is the sharpest Kerrison Rongeur his family has ever produced.

Thanks to the craftsmanship of Tuttlingen’s Stuugard family, surgeons can use the Kerrison King Rongeur to better practice their medical craftsmanship to save lives and enhance the health of their patients.

Kerrison Rongeurs Highest Quality Standards

The Kerrison King Rongeurs are painstakingly crafted to fit the needs of the surgeon. The compliment, “you have the hands of a surgeon” refers to elegant hands, long nimble fingers, and soft, unblemished skin. It signifies that one’s hands are well suited for delicate work and possess special qualities.

Studies, in fact, show that the best surgeons possess hands that are, indeed, special. This is addressed first-hand in A Vital Measure: Your Surgeon’s Skill, authored by Pauline Chen, M.D., in the New York Times on October 13, 2013. You can read the complete article here.

Dr. Chen describes findings that confirm what patients have long suspected and trainees have long known – the dexterity of a surgeon’s hands can account for much of the differences in how well patients do. Dexterity is one thing; the instrument those dexterous hands use to conduct surgery is another.

That’s why Kerrison King has incorporated only the highest quality standards and materials in the design and craftsmanship that characterizes its Kerrison King Rongeurs. Indeed, the Kerrison King is a remarkably precise instrument made with the surgeon’s dexterous hands in mind.

Two particular features underscore the Kerrison King’s special abilities: its sharpness, which makes it the sharpest Kerrison Rongeur in the marketplace, and a double-ceramic coating that serves to preserve the Kerrison King’s sharp edge.

These features combined, add to a smooth bone-cutting action that minimizes hand fatigue and provides the surgeon with the confidence that they are using an instrument that will produce a clean and powerful bite every time.

In short, The Kerrison King is the ideal Kerrison Rongeur best suited to deft surgeons and the patients they so ably serve.
