"We're happy to be able to support the great work of the Uganda Spine Surgery Mission and continue to pledge our support as the mission's goals and values mirror those of Misonix, in that their dedication is fueled by their commitment to improving patient lives," said Scott Ludecker, senior vice president, Misonix. "Operating under less than ideal circumstances, the BoneScalpel allows these surgeons to be able to perform spine surgery that is safe, efficient and impactful. We want to thank Dr. Lieberman, the mission's many spine surgeons and medical staff for their charitable work in Uganda. Their selfless effort to help the less fortunate continues to be an inspiration to us all."
