Sponge Forceps

Sponge forceps are blunt-tipped instruments, which are used to hold cotton swabs or sponges during gynecological procedures, dentistry, and various other related surgeries. These forceps are shaped like scissors and are reusable. Robbins Instruments supplies premium-grade sponge forceps, which are available in multiple lengths and specifications.

Advantages of Sponge Forceps Offered by Robbins Instruments

Some beneficial features of our high-quality line of sponge forceps are mentioned below:

  1. Material: Sponge forceps are manufactured from medical-grade stainless steel. Stainless steel construction helps to provide structural integrity and durability. It also helps avoid corrosion, thereby providing longevity to the forceps. These sponge forceps have rounded jaws, which makes them an ideal choice for operations that demand careful handling. A ring or a ratcheted grip helps holding the sponge firmly during the operation. 
  2. Specifications: We provide sponge forceps with straight, curved or serrated jaws. They are available in 9.5” and 12.5” lengths.
  3. Versatile applications: These forceps are used during most surgeries for holding gauze squares to absorb excess fluids and help stop excess bleeding. Most surgeons prefer using sponge forceps during operations because they minimize tissue damage. This is because these forceps have no sharp edges. Longer forceps are often used during bariatric surgeries. Curved forceps find significant use in various gynecological procedures. One of the most common uses is removal of the placenta after childbirth.
