The surgical saws were developed by 3%Y-TZP and Ceria stabilized Zirconia powders. The specimens were uniaxial pressed and sintered conventionally. The saw-teeth were machined by CNC machine using diamond tool. The investigation includes the raise in temperature in bone tissue during cutting process with respect to increase in cutting speed and pressure. Thermal damage of bone tissue would be harmful in case recovery. The rise in temperature during cutting of bone by ceramic saws were compared with stainless steel saw. The significant lower in temperature during bone-cut, excellent corrosion resistance after sterilization, hardness, wear and abrasive resistance properties show the advantages of ceramic saws in orthopedic surgeries.
