The implementation of these surgical rasps in operations in the specialized field of final prosthetics offers numerous advantages. Bone rasps are assisting surgeons to treat nasal diseases by producing smooth bones in plastic surgery and removing excess edges that can damage soft tissues. Ongoing advancements have favoured the evolution of these products that are associated with offering optimum specificity & reliability. Thus, numerous advantages related to the use of surgical rasps are anticipated to offer substantial market opportunities.

A surgical rasps or bone rasps is a surgical equipment used to sculpt bone in surgical procedures. The primary function of the bone rasp is to trim, reshape, and form bone surfaces.  They provide the surgeon or other medical professionals including podiatrists, with the ability to address issues affecting bone surfaces easily and quickly. Depending upon the model and design surgical rasps are classified as double-ended and single ended.

The availability of alternative options such as osteotomes and bone chisels in plastic and orthopedic surgery can negatively impact surgical rasps market development. These alternatives are becoming increasingly reliable and widely used. Osteotomes are instruments used for cutting or preparing bone, while bone chisels are used to cut and reshape hard cortical bone. Physicians sometimes prefer these alternatives due to drawbacks associated with surgical rasps, such as mechanical and thermal damage to the bone and difficult extraction. Consequently, the market growth for surgical rasps may be limited to some extent due to the availability of these alternative options.
