Surgical Instruments – Scissors
Surgical scissors are specialized cutting instruments used by surgeons to cut and dissect various types of tissues during surgical procedures.

There are several types of surgical scissors, including:
- Mayo scissors: These are large, heavy-duty scissors that are commonly used to cut thick tissues such as muscles and fascia.
- Metzenbaum scissors: These are delicate scissors with long, thin blades that are commonly used to cut soft tissues such as skin and fat.

- Stevens scissors: These are curved scissors that are commonly used in plastic surgeries.
- Tenotomy scissors: These are small, delicate scissors with curved blades that are commonly used in orthopedic surgeries.
- Littauer scissors: These are scissors with small, sharp blades that are commonly used to cut sutures and to open small incisions.
Surgical scissors are essential tools for any surgical procedure and are designed to provide precise and clean cuts. It is important to choose the appropriate type of surgical scissors based on the type of tissue being cut and the surgical procedure being performed.
