Medline's team of sales representatives, clinical nurses, and regional O.R. specialists work together with Materials Management, O.R. Management, surgeons, and staff prior to, during, and after the surgical glove evaluation.

Our team will meet with your team to detail the product options, features and benefits, and address any concerns.
