All the endoscopy products we sell are either new or pre-owned and have been refurbished so that they meet the original manufacturer's specifications and are guaranteed against defects in materials and workmanship for up to ONE YEAR. We are specialists in the field of endoscopy and have the instrumentation you are seeking at remarkable low prices.

HMB Endoscopy - Nurse JoanWith over 40 years experience in the field of surgical and endoscopic products, H.M.B. Endoscopy Products is a valuable resource to use when decisions must be made regarding the purchase of endoscopic instrumentation. We offer alternative and creative solutions to budget problems so that you get considerably more equipment for your available dollars.

Unlike used equipment brokers or full-line used equipment dealers who have no in-depth knowledge of the products they sell, H.M.B. Endoscopy Products specializes only in the sale and service of endoscopy products. We purchase pre-owned, "experienced" endoscopes and endoscopic accessories from manufacturers such as Olympus, Pentax, Fujinon, and Storz. The instruments are refurbished in our own on site repair facility and then, only after they pass our rigorous quality control standards, are they offered for sale at remarkably low prices.

HMB Endoscopy HeadquartersOur extensive inventory of more than 1500 endoscopy products is available for immediate sale. It includes video and fiber-optic flexible and rigid scopes, light sources, video processors, cameras, monitors, printers and adapters. All the equipment we have for sale has been inspected and refurbished so that it meets the original manufacturer's specifications.

We welcome special requests. Let us know if you need a Scope or Accessory that is not listed and we will locate it for you. We will do our best to work with you so you get the scope you want at a price you can afford.

H.M.B. Endoscopy Products will save you thousands and thousands of dollars when you purchase your new or refurbished endoscopy products from us. We guarantee all the products we sell for up to one year and we protect you from making incorrect buying decisions through our unique free 90 day upgrade policy. You are dealing with endoscopy sales professionals with years of experience who will not disappoint you. This is our firm commitment to you.
