We provide the industry’s latest platforms and stay current with new releases and updates as they become available. Our equipment is routinely manufacture-maintained and ready for surgery can so your day can run as smoothly and safely as possible.
Cataract Specific Inventory
We take care of all of the details.
One of the many benefits of working with Surgical Direct is lens and case supply management. Ophthalmology is nuanced and specific when it comes to the supplies needed for surgery. OR administrators have plenty to manage with other specialties. As a part of our service, we provide surgeon-specific case supply lists for your surgery day, including lens implants.
IOL Lens Consignments: We fully manage our own lens consignments. We carry full consignments of all popular lens brands and models, and are able to special order any lens the surgeon might need. Primary, sulcus, AC, Toric, Multifocal, and more. We coordinate ahead of each surgery day with the surgeon’s office for their lens picks, so that we always have the lens they need.
Ancillary Supplies: We provide tailored supply lists for each surgeon. This ensures the doctor has the exact item needed for each procedure, while aleviating your OR team of managing the inventory. This includes all standard supplies needed for surgery including, drapes, blades, BSS, viscoelastic, cannulas, and other disposables.
Specialty Supplies: In addition to routine case supplies, we also carry backup and specialty items like Malyugin Rings, CTRs, Vitrectors, MIGS, and other specialty items that can be requested and provided.
Our Cataract Coordinators
The difference-makers at Surgical Direct.
At Surgical Direct, we are driven to serve our customers with excellence. Our goal is to offer the absolute best support to surgeons and OR teams. We believe that our coordinators are the gold standard; what can turn a case from good to great.
Having experienced, aware, cordial, and supportive coordinators in your OR during surgery can make a big difference on surgery day. These qualities increase the day’s efficiency, raise the surgeon’s comfort level, and ensure quality patient care by allowing the nursing staff to focus more on the patient vs other details (such as adjusting machine settings, opening case supplies, or other turnover-related tasks).
Our coordinators are highly-trained and knowledgeable assets to your OR. They undergo a 90-day intensive training upon hire before they ever step foot into an OR on their own. They are annually trained in OR protocols, sterile field protocol, instrumentation and equipment technology (with manufacture representatives), and much more.
A Typical Surgery Day with SDI
Support from start to finish.
The week prior to surgery: Our team works directly with Ophthalmologist and Administrators to calculate how many cases are planned for the day and the surgeon’s final lens picks (primary, secondary, and specialty lenses).
Day before surgery: Your assigned technician will call to confirm cases numbers and start times. They will also meticulously pack up all equipment and supplies needed (included ample backups) for the day and load them into our climate-controlled vans.
On surgery day: Our technician(s) will arrive at your facility in enough time for handpiece trays and scope handles to be sterilized. We then setup the equipment, organize supplies and lenses, and help get the OR ready for an on-time start. After cases start, our techs play an active role, assisting the surgeon with settings, anticipating needs, helping with turnover, and more.
After surgery: At the end of the day, we pack up the equipment and remaining supplies until the next scheduled surgery visit. You’ll get an invoice from our office within a few days. That’s it!
