The tongs are a recurring tool in the Amateur Surgeon series. They are generally used to slowly pull objects out of cuts, carry them to tray and (if needed) put the replacement back in, though they have some other uses as well. As of Amateur Surgeon 3, misusing the tongs will harm the patient. Unnecessary tapping on the patient's body with this tool will cause the heart rate to go down.
Amateur Surgeon Edit
Aside from their usual use, the tongs are also used to drag Dr. Bleed's smashed ribcage in the first operation.
Amateur Surgeon: Christmas Edition Edit
In this game, the tongs are replaced by the grabber arm, which still has the same purpose.
Amateur Surgeon 2 Edit
The tongs return in this game and have the same purpose as in previous games. During the Dr. Bleed bonus surgery, they are used to put his finger on. When upgraded, extraction becomes easier to the point of being instant on smaller objects.
Amateur Surgeon 3: Tag Team Trauma Edit
The tongs return in this game and have the same uses. They're also used to pull insects to the tray after stunning them with the car battery.
Amateur Surgeon 4: Re-Generations Edit
The tongs have similar use from Amateur Surgeon 3, where they are used to extract and replace objects. They are also useful in removing some dead creatures(e.g fleas, bats, flies). When the tongs are upgraded to level 10 (max level), they gain what can be called "miss immunity". This means that the player will be protected from missing with the tongs entirely, with the exception of placing down vital objects into a patient. However, please keep in mind, this perk does NOT take effect in Sudden Death mode.
