Best Orthopedic Surgery Table Manufacturers – Fracture and Trauma Tables

Hana Orthopaedic Surgery Table

Best Ortho Table Fit For You
The orthopedic fracture trauma table can be one of the most expensive pieces of capital equipment in the operating room.

As everything specialized, the more specific it is to its function, the higher the cost it’s going to be.

For example, you wouldn’t buy a hatchback smart car if you’re a carpenter who needs a truck to haul lumber and tools.

The high cost created two options for ortho tables:

  1. An actual orthopedic table meant only for orthopedic procedures.
  2. An alternative orthopedic extension that attaches to an existing general surgery table.

With so many options out there, you may be wondering which manufacturer makes the best orthopedic surgery table?

Additionally, you may be wondering which is the better option for you: ortho table or ortho table extension for a general surgery table.

Great questions, so let’s dive right in. In this article, we will cover manufacturers for both.

Given our reputable background and decades of multi-brand experience in the surgical table market, we are in a unique position to present this review of the best orthopedic surgery table manufacturers in a non-biased format.

We always do our best to include the most relevant and popular ortho tables based on several decades of experience in the surgical table business, market research and estimated market share.
