The drechtal beam was a surgical tool in the 24th century.
In 2368, during a surgery to replace Wolf's damaged spine, Doctor Toby Russell ordered Dr. Beverly Crusher to focus the drectal beams onto the anterior and posterior spinal roots. Once the beams were focused, Crusher initiated the tool which severed all the neural connections below the first cervical vertebra. (TNG: "Ethics")
