We process orders on a “first come, first served”, basis, due to the covid shut down our current “turn around time” is between 3 and 5 business days, based on the number of orders received on any given day. If there is a date when you must have your instruments, in hand, please write it on the order form and we will do everything we can to accommodate your needs. If you need a “Rush Order” please call us and we can set up an appointment. 

I have uploaded our new price list, effective 8/15/22 orders received after that date will be charged the new prices. I hate doing this but costs for everything have risen dramatically, surgical stainless steel prices have gone up over 400% since 2019. 

call us so we can meet your needs.

Here are links to our Catalog, Price List, and Order Form.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Thank you and I hope you, your family, and your friends stay safe!
