Surgical Tables With Stirrups

Surgical tables have the option to come with stirrups at an additional cost, especially depending on the type of surgery that will be involved. Stirrups are commonly found in gynecologist and urology offices. Stirrups help to elevate the positioning of the legs so that the pelvic region is easily operated on. The stirrups are movable so that different positioning during surgery is achieved.

The stirrups help both the patient and the doctor. The surgeon can better view the bodily structures and have a less invasive procedure. The less invasive a procedure is, the less of a risk there is for infection, sepsis, punctured tissue, or other medical complications. Stirrups allow the doctor to perform the procedure either standing or in a seated position. Technological innovations such as these have helped the success of surgical milestones within the last century.
