Biopsy forceps are a surgical instrument that resemble a pair of scissors. They are used as a grasping tool during surgery. Biopsies are performed when a physician needs to examine tissue for disease. By testing tissue retrieved during a biopsy, physicians can diagnose patients and determine the most appropriate course of treatment, or rule out certain illnesses.
During surgery, biopsy forceps can be used for delicate work. If the physicians fingers are too large to manipulate tissue inside a small incision, these instruments will take the place of fingers. They can also act as a third hand during surgery. If several bits of tissue need to be held aside while a surgeon performs a task with his hands, biopsy forceps will be used to hold the tissue aside.
