Hydrosurgery System

VERSAJET 2 Console


The VERSAJET II system enables a surgeon to precisely select, excise and evacuate nonviable tissue, bacteria and contaminants from wounds, burns and soft tissue injuries. 1,2

As the handpiece travels tangentially over the soft tissue surface it creates a smooth wound bed while maximising dermal preservation. The tissue-preserving technique reduces time to closure which may reduce overall treatment costs. 1,3,6

System Overview

The VERSAJET◊ II Hydrosurgery System enhances preservation of viable tissue during surgical debridement and reduces time to closure, while streamlining excision through procedural efficiency that delivers consistent clinical and economic value.

The VERSAJET II system enables a surgeon to:

  • Preserve viable tissue and reduces debridement procedures 1,2

  • Create a smooth wound bed to enhance graft take and closure 3

  • Remove bacteria to help reduce the risk of infection 1,2

  • Reduce time to closure, which may shorten hospital stay 1,4
