Dr. Robert Recker, Director of the Creighton University Osteoporosis Research Center, developed the unique kerf of the cutting teeth after 'saw-blade' style teeth proved to be largely ineffective.  

For some frequently asked questions regarding the use of the bone graft device answered by Dr. Recker, please view the FAQ Brochure.  One frequently asked question is, "What is your opinion with regards to the number of procedures you would recommend before reconditiong the Trephine Cutter Device?"  

"2 - 5 biopsies. You will notice that I send the trephines in for "touching up" quite often. I rarely do more than 3 or 4 biopsies with a trephine before sending it to you for sharpening." -Dr. Recker
