Q. Do you sterilize the instruments you use for surgery?

YES! Each surgery that is performed will utilize its own surgical pack of instruments. After each surgery the instument pack is scrubbed, rinsed, placed in an ultrasonic cleanser, then wrapped in fresh cloth to be placed in an autoclave to be sterilized. We have sterile indicator tape that is placed around the pack, and a sterile indicator strip that is placed within the pack. These strips let us know that the pack has been properly sterilized after being removed from the autoclave(sterilizer).
