October 12, 2021
Stainless steel is ideal for hygienic environments as it’s easily sterilized and resistant to corrosion. It is used in the construction of surgical and dental instruments, kidney dishes and operating tables, as well as other medical equipment such as cannulas, steam sterilizers and MRI scanners.
Surgical implants use stainless steel, as well as replacement joints such as artificial hips. Stainless steel pins and plates are used to fix broken bones in place.
