Disposable and reposable scissors are preferred by surgeons because they ensure that the incision quality is not compromised by providing a sharp, new blade for each procedure. Disposable instruments generate the highest per-procedure revenue, as a device is used in only one procedure and then discarded. The cost of these single-use instruments accumulates over time, which can burden capital budgets. Reusable instruments generate the lowest revenue per-procedure, as they are used for multiple surgeries before replacement.

Hand instruments are hand-held surgical tools commonly inserted into the patient’s body through access devices. They are usually 5mm to 10mm in diameter, and can be purchased in sizes as small as 2.3mm. Reposable instruments consist of a reusable handle and disposable tip; they offer a cost-effective solution to maintain both the hygiene and the performance standards of the instrument during surgery while accommodating healthcare budgets. The majority of reposable instruments are scissors.
