The Benefits of Medical Scope Repair vs. Buying New

MedTec Applications Offers Expert Repair Services to Restore Functionality


Like other durable medical equipment, your Los Angeles, CA, medical scopes repair decision often comes down to economics. Does it make sense to repair that medical scope or buy a new one? When medical practices consider the expert care and precision work done, the decision to choose medical scope repair becomes clear.

Financial managers at many medical practices struggle with the decision of whether to repair or replace with countless medical items. While patient safety continues to be the paramount factor, these officials must also consider the age of equipment and whether it is serviceable.

Fortunately, today’s medical scope design and construction is such that endoscopes and other items are made to last. However, the nature of medical scope usage is that these devices endure a lot of wear and tear and have components that can be susceptible to damage.

While medical scopes repair is most often the right choice, there are a few situations where it might make sense to buy a new scope:

  • Replacement parts are unavailable. Some manufacturers phase out older parts when newer models come on board. Fortunately, in the medical scope repair business, there are a number of suppliers of non-OEM parts available.
  • Service costs rise. In some areas, the costs to repair equipment can become prohibitive. That’s not the case with medical scope repair at MedTec Applications, which offers reasonable, affordable, and practical prices that, combined with fast and accurate repair processes, make repair the financially sound choice.
  • Patient care is disrupted. Obviously, practices rely on scopes for many procedures. That’s why at MedTec, we offer rapid turnaround. Once you’ve approved the scope of work to repair your scope, we begin work immediately, completing all necessary repairs, reassembly, and testing to ensure your scope is out of commission as little time as possible.
  • High failure rates. If your device fails repeatedly, it may be time to replace it. However, first let our technicians assess the scope to see if there is something that other repair shops have missed.
