To enhance the safety of the patient a controlled depth (CD) osteotomy cutter was designed. The power-oriented depth controlled osteotomy cutter (PODCO) was developed and used in patients and infants craniofacial surgery. As the power equipment was technologically advanced, a new design allowed us to keep the same principle with a technologically advanced cutter. The new 1 mm cutter allows the surgeon to dial in the desired depth so that the osteotomy can be performed with precision and enhanced safety to the patient.
