T Handle Bone Awl/Reamer

T Handle Bone Awl/Reamer

The T-handle design allows surgeons to exert controlled pressure and navigate the instrument with precision during bone preparation. The ergonomic handle provides a comfortable grip and facilitates accurate manipulation of the instrument.

Note: It’s important to note that the specific use of the T-handle bone awl/reamer may vary depending on the surgical procedure and surgeon preference.


The T-handle bone awl/reamer is a surgical instrument commonly used in orthopedic procedures. It consists of a handle that resembles the letter “T” and a sharp, pointed tip that tapers to a broader diameter.

The primary use of the T-handle bone awl/reamer is in the preparation of bone surfaces during orthopedic procedures. It is commonly used in surgeries such as joint replacements, fracture fixation, and bone grafting. The sharp tip of the instrument allows surgeons to create or enlarge holes within the bone, a process known as reaming. This is typically done to prepare the bone for the insertion of implants, such as screws or prosthetic components.

The broader diameter of the tip can be used to smooth and shape bone surfaces. It aids in removing irregularities, rough edges, or bony prominences to create a more suitable surface for implant placement or improve joint articulation. Reaming the bone using the T-handle bone awl/reamer helps to improve the stability of implants by creating a precise and accurate fit. This can enhance the long-term success of procedures such as joint arthroplasty.
