Well beyond ordinary, Planatome® Technology infuses atomic level precision into the 100-year-old surgical scalpel, producing ultra-smooth, molecularly refined cutting surfaces which yield extraordinary results.


  • No grind defects – nano-perfected cutting surface
  • Improved surgical experience – no tugging effect; cleaner, more precise incisions
  • Faster healing with fewer infections; less pain and reduced nerve damage; increased wound strength with less scarring.

The Technology: a process called Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP) is used to finely finish the surfaces of silicon wafers in advanced manufacturing of computer chips. It is an exacting, precise, and proven technology. We have adopted CMP to perfect the cutting surfaces of scalpels, creating a smoother, nano-perfected cutting surface, and delivering a long overdue improvement to a critical surgical tool.

Faster Healing with Less Infections

Histological studies of bilateral incisions show an increase in post-operative wound healing when using a Planatome® surgical blade versus a standard scalpel blade. At 24 hours post-op, the incision created with a Planatome® blade was over 90% closed compared to a 10% closure with the standard blade. The improved healing time is a result of the defect-free surface of the Planatome® blade not causing surgically induced tissue trauma, which aids in faster healing.

Reduced Scarring with Increased Wound Strength

These scar comparisons between the nano-perfected Planatome® surgical blade and a standard scalpel blade illustrate the collagen deposition and reorganization from each incision. Planatome® blade incisions show a more uniform collagen deposition and produce a better scar due to faster collagen reorganization from a reduction in tissue disruption.

This ocular surgical case study shows incision scarring two weeks after the procedure using a standard scalpel and a Planatome® surgical blade.

Planatome® Technology offers a ‘cutting-edge’ tool for exceptional surgeons to produce even more extraordinary results.
