Northfield technicians have extensive experience repairing rigid arthroscopes, cystoscopes, laparoscopes, sinuscopes, hysteroscopes, ureteroscopes, operating laparoscopes, bariatric laparoscopes, and vein harvesting scopes from Storz, Stryker, ACMI, and others.

  • Apparent field of view
  • Aperture alignment
