Reusable versus Disposable Surgical Instruments: Which is Better?

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought clinicians under the scrutiny of healthcare organizations for establishing infection control. This has led to the avoidance of reusable surgical instruments in operating theaters. As such, companies in the surgical kits market are benefitting with a surge in the use of disposable surgical instruments. However, healthcare systems are challenged with high environmental costs for waste disposal.

Storage of disposable surgical instruments is relatively easy as compared to reusable surgical instruments, since the latter needs to be reprocessed with repair, rework, and equipment chemicals. Such hurdles are influencing the expansion of the surgical kits market. As such, upfront costs of disposable surgical instruments is high as compared to the utilization of reusable surgical instruments.
