Premier Repair & Refurbishment Service
Surgical Holdings can repair all manner of surgical instruments including scopes, air tools and electric hand pieces, diathermy and bipolar cables and other instruments, including the Bookwalter Retractor System. All surgical instrument repairs carried out are to an exceptionally high standard.
LONG TERM VALUE
All surgical Instruments are repaired to BS 5194, Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) speciﬁcation in accordance with the recommendations laid out in MHRA ‘Managing Medical Devices’ to ensure longevity of repair and protection of materials and hardness, which can be detrimentally affected by a non-OEM repair.
HIGH QUALITY WORKMANSHIP
Your damaged instruments will be returned fully refurbished ‘as new’. This may include re-grinding, honing, re-setting, welding, polishing, and nitric acid passivation. Replacing instruments is avoided ; however, when it is necessary, you will be notified of the cost. Broken instruments can be re-manufactured if no longer available, and some general instruments are replaced for the cost of the repair if the quality of the original doesn’t meet our stringent standards.
TRACEABILITY AND LASER MARKING
Laser marking instruments gives improved tracking and traceability of instrumentation, and can be linked into your own HSDU tracking system. When orders are placed, you can decide what you would like encoded. Your instruments are sized marked where practicable at no extra cost and can also be GS1 2D matrix marked.
Recent projects have accounted for over a 50% saving for refurbishment of instruments vs purchase of new instruments. Independent tests by Catra have proved our repairs cost as little as 0.0006p per use after our repair.
THE ECOLOGICAL ARGUMENT
Manufacturing 2,600 new instruments uses as much carbon as powering a house for a whole year. The energy consumption of a repair is small compared with mineral extraction and stainless steel production.
