Skytron Surgical Tables
The Operating Table
The operating table is an essential part of any successful surgical procedure. Today, various types of used medical equipment are available for use in specialized procedures as well as catering to basic operating requirements. The most important function of the surgical table is to keep the patient in the best position possible for the particular surgical procedure and to allow the surgeon to make any necessary adjustment during the procedure without interfering with the operation.
The used surgical table market can be subdivided into general surgery and specialty surgery tables. General surgery tables include acute care, ambulatory care and bariatric tables, while specialty surgery tables include orthopedic, ortho/spine and image-guided surgery tables.
The largest segment in the total rebuilt surgical table market is general surgery tables. The average price paid for operating room tables was 16% higher over the last year as more hospitals have purchased pricier orthopedic specialty tables and hybrid OR tables. General surgical tables, on average, cost about $50,000, while specialty tables can cost up to four times more. Orthopedic specialty tables usually run about $100,000 and the average price of hybrid OR tables is about $200,000. Different configurations can increase or decrease the total cost of the tables.
Cost conscious facilities both large and small are looking to companies such as Northern Scientific to save money on their used Skytron surgical tables. Our Rebuild and Exchange Program is by far our most value-oriented service. If you like your Skytron table, consider having it rebuilt or upgrade to a newer model. Each rebuilt Skytron surgery table comes with a 365 day part and labor warranty and is expected to last the next decade with minimal preventive maintenance.
