The best way to learn the surgical instruments is hands on with a tray of instruments in front of you. Unfortunately most of us don't always have access to the hundreds of instruments used in modern surgery.

The second best way to learn the surgical instruments used in surgery today is with "Learning Surgical Instruments" and the "Surgical Instrument Quizzes".

Have fun while you quickly learn to identify all of the surgical instruments listed to the right covering the majority of surgical procedures you will encounter. Just like the instrument quiz on the website, the "Surgical Instrument Quizzes" present large detailed photos of every instrument and provides feedback from the multiple choice possibilities.
