A morcellator is a medical device used by surgeons to cut up tissue so it could be easily removed through small incisions. Typically, morcellators are used for minimally-invasive procedures to allow quicker patient recovery. However, when power morcellators are used on women who had undiscovered uterine cancer, the FDA linked morcellators to spreading cancerous tissue throughout the abdomen and pelvis.
