Why the Surgical Device Repair Service?
Rigid endoscopes – STERIS can repair and exchange common makes and models of rigid endoscopes. Common scope repairs include bent tubing, physically damaged light fibers at the distal end, or optical relay misalignment. Without proper care and maintenance, damage to rigid endoscopes can impact surgical performance and risk patient safety. Our comprehensive endoscope maintenance and restoration can decrease downtime and increase the functional life of these surgical devices.
Power equipment, including drills, saws, drivers, and attachments – Due to the surgical environment, surgical power equipment can be at an increased risk for repairs and maintenance. STERIS can help extend your power tools without sacrificing performance and/or quality. Our repair services include pneumatic, battery-operated, and electric for orthopedic and neurology equipment.
Video equipment, including cameras, couplers, and light cords – Video cameras and equipment are vital to everyday use in the OR and must be working at peak performance. STERIS provides high-quality repair services for most makes and models of video cameras, couplers, and light cords. STERIS rapidly returns them to the original performance standards.
Improper handling of surgical devices, inadequate quality control between surgical procedures, and not following the OEM IFUs could all lead to poor performance of the device, cause frustration in the OR, and compromise patient safety.
