Scope and Instrument Holder Repair

With so many manufacturers creating a wide range of surgical instruments, it can be difficult to find the right service and repair company for those instruments. Kinney Surgical offers complete surgical instrument repair for every type of surgical instrument including scope and instrument holders. When you choose Kinney Surgical for your instrument holders maintenance and repair you’ll only pay for what you actually need repaired (no large, flat rate fees).

Our qualified technicians will offer explanations of the repairs and share detailed reports and photos from the master technician that worked on your instrument holder, scope holder, laparoscopic holder, flex arm, and more. We believe in utilizing the tried and true OEM manufacturing processes for maintenance and repairs instead of cutting corners or trying newly developed methods that have no proven track record of long term success. Our inspection process can even detect items that may need to be repaired before failure.

What do we repair on scope and instrument holders?

When we repair an instrument holder, there are many items to consider. Whether it is the rail clamp, holder attachments, retractor, locking knob mechanisms, or even internal cables and links, we understand how these critical components can have an impact on the effectiveness of your equipment and cause road blocks when you’re preforming a procedure. We keep parts for many common brands in stock so that we can provide a fast turnaround on the repairs of your products. Our highly skilled technicians are able to detect stress fractures on instruments with a microscope, and repair prior to failure. Through our extensive quality control process we can test each instrument to determine if parts need replacement or refurbishment. Additionally, we offer preventative maintenance on these instruments to prolong their life and prevent a failure in the operating room.

To assess the equipment for the repairs needed, our qualified technicians use an intensive multipoint testing process that includes these 5 main areas which are likely to show the most wear and decreased functionality over time.

A: Joint Repair: Remove Corrosion, Refurbish, and Repair

B: Locking Knob Mechanisms: Refurbish or Replace Knobs, Replace Bearings and Internal Components

C: Scope / Instrument Holder Attachments: Repair Springs, Repair or Replace Attachments
