    Hello everyone

    I'm in a plastics/hand residency program where I currently spend time in a research lab. I would like to take the time to learn microsurgery technique during this time. Unfortunately we don't have a decent set of instruments and I cannot borrow one from the OR for obvious reasons. Does anyone know where I can get a decent set of microsurgical instruments for an affordable price?

    thanks!

    @alamo4 While I appreciate the input - I really do - those are not microsurgical instruments. They may look like they are, but try grasping the needle of a 10/0 suture with these jaws and you'll see immediately what the problem is. Thank you anyways!

    I have since managed to find a few good deals on eBay. But it's a bit of a gamble, since most sellers can't give you a closeup image of the jaws. One pair of forceps was badly bend and I was unable to fix it. You win some, you lose some...
