Description

In 1893, Vinzenz Mueller brought his knowledge of German instrument craftsmanship to the United States and established a tradition that has carried through to today. His successor, William Merz, established the V. Mueller name as one synonymous with innovation and collaboration. In 1951, Leonard Snowden and George Pencer introduced the revolutionary tungsten carbide insert to the jaws of surgical instruments to make them stronger and longer lasting. Over the decades surgical instruments have become more sophisticated and more advanced. Despite so many innovations, there are still instruments today that have barely evolved. This catalogue shows instruments for the practitioners of plastic surgery and oral surgery, including maxillofacial surgery.
