Surgical Technology


Surgical Technologists are health professionals, serving as an integral part of the team of medical practitioners that provide surgical care to patients in a variety of settings. Surgical Technology involves all areas of surgery requiring aseptic technique and surgical instrumentation. A surgical technologist is a valuable part of the operating team. The role of a surgical technologist involves being responsible for maintaining a sterile environment to prevent contamination, passing instruments and anticipating the needs of the surgeon, handling bodily tissues, and assist in providing wound care. Technologists work in all surgical areas with skills in the operating room, instrument processing, material management, and labor and delivery.
