What is general surgery?

General surgery is a branch of the medical field that involves a wide range of surgical procedures. Surgeons specializing in this field perform surgeries on almost any body part except the brain, heart, and bones. Some shared general surgeries include appendectomy, hernia repair, gallbladder removal, and colon resection. Surgeons may use traditional open surgery techniques or minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques, depending on the complexity of the procedure and the patient's specific needs. Surgeons use innovative technology and medical equipment, including custom-made blades, to ensure patient outcomes.

What types of custom surgical blades does Baucor manufacture?

We manufacture a wide range of custom surgical blades tailored to surgical procedures. Each blade, from specialized nasal blades to intricate custom spoon knives, is meticulously inspected to ensure it meets the surgeons' requirements.

How is surgery performed?

General surgeries vary in complexity, with each intervention requiring a unique approach based on the nature of the condition. This may involve making incisions, excising tissues, or performing delicate maneuvers that are critical for surgery to be successful. Specialized tools are often needed to enhance the surgeon's ability to navigate these complexities and ensure patient safety.

The specific procedures and techniques used in general surgeries may vary depending on the type of surgery and the patient's condition. Typically, surgeons will evaluate the patient's condition by conducting a thorough examination and reviewing their medical history to determine if surgery is necessary. If it is, tests and assessments may be required to ensure the patient is fit for the surgery.

The surgical procedure usually begins with the administration of anesthesia to induce a controlled state of unconsciousness and ensure the patient's safety and comfort. Surgeons then make precise incisions to expose the targeted area for surgical intervention. Depending on the nature of the surgery, they may perform various tasks, such as removing diseased tissues, repairing organs, or rerouting blood vessels. Specialized instruments, including custom surgical blades, facilitate precise cutting and manipulation. Once the treatment is complete, surgeons will close the incisions using sutures or adhesive strips.

General surgeries necessitate a thorough understanding of human anatomy, advanced techniques, and specialized equipment. For optimal patient outcomes, surgeons need to have access to the best available tools, including custom-made blades. Such tools are essential in challenging surgeries, enabling surgeons to perform procedures with the highest precision and delicacy.

What are Baucor's quality assurance and regulatory?

At Baucor, ensuring quality and regulatory compliance is our top priority. We subject our manufacturing process to rigorous testing to ensure that every blade we produce conforms to the standards required in the surgical industry. Our experts are dedicated to maintaining high standards and achieving excellence in our operation.

 How are medical blades manufactured?

  • Cutting:
    The first step in manufacturing is to use a CNC machine to cut the blade to the desired shape.

  • Heating:
    Next, the blade is put through a heat treatment process to harden the metal and make it more durable.

  • Sharpening:
    After heating, the blade is sharpened to remove any imperfections. A grinding process is then used to refine and make the blade sharper. 

  • Coating:
    Coating the tips of blades can help the blade better withstand wear and tear. It can prolong the blade's lifespan.

Which material should you use for the blades?

The choice of materials for surgical blades depends on various factors, including the surgeon's preference, the type of surgery, and the instrument's needs. Surgical blades must adhere to strict standards for biocompatibility, sterilization, precision, and durability to ensure the patient's safety and the procedure's success.

At Baucor, we offer the following materials for surgical blades:

• Stainless steel:
This material is the most used for surgical instruments due to its durability, corrosion resistance, and ease of sterilization.

• Carbon steel:
One option for surgical blades is a very sharp material that maintains its edge but is less corrosion-resistant than stainless steel.

• Tungsten carbide:
This material is made of tungsten and carbon, making it durable and wear-resistant - an excellent choice for surgical blade tips and edges.
