Stille is renowned for its unique, light and well-balanced surgical scissors. Stille’s scissors confer maximum cutting strength in all types of soft tissue with minimal force, not just when new, but after many years of use. Our scissors are available in Standard, SuperCut and Ergonomic versions.
Stille invented the SuperCut scissors in 1982. They have unparalleled performance in soft tissue. Stille’s SuperCut scissors have specially designed cutting surfaces—a combination of scissor and knife edges, so they cut themselves forward. SuperCut scissors cut with high precision right to their tip. Their special sharpening makes them ideal for right or left-handed surgeons. Just like all scissors, SuperCut need regular sharpening. When it is time for sharpening, Stille’s tenured instrument craftsmen ensure that scissors are sharpened with maximum precision.
Ergonomic Surgical Scissors
Surgical scissors are normally held with precision using the thumb and the long or ring finger. When using scissors of a traditional design, the hand usually ends up in a strenuous resting position which may cause tension or fatigue in the surgeon’s hand after sustained and repeated use.
In order to achieve a grip that more closely resembles the hand’s normal resting position, Stille has developed a range of scissors with increased space between the cheeks compared to traditional scissors. Stille’s ergonomically designed scissors have the advantage that the surgeon’s hand need not become exhausted during lengthy procedures.
