Surgical Equipment

A surgical instrument is a specially designed tool or device for performing specific actions of carrying out desired effects during a surgery or operation, such as modifying biological tissue, or to provide access for viewing it. Over time, many different kinds of surgical instruments and tools have been invented. Some surgical instruments are designed for general use in surgery, while others are designed for a specific procedure or surgery.

Surgical instruments can be generally divided into six classes by function. These classes are:

  • 1. Cutting instruments
  • 2. Grasping or holding instruments
  • 3. Haemostatic forceps (instruments used to stop blood flow)
  • 4. Retractors
  • 5. Clamps and distractors
  • 6. Accessories and implants
