Surgical and Operation Theatre technologists are an integral part of the hospital team that provides surgical, pre-op, and post-op care to patients in a variety of settings. Surgical technologists are integrated members of a surgical team who work in conjunction with the surgeon, anaesthesiologist, and nurse in order to provide quality care to the patient before, during, and after a surgery. They help to setup the operating room, surgical instruments, and other sterile supplies needed for the surgery. They are vital personnel who work side-by-side with the surgeon during a surgical procedure and may assist in the surgery under the supervision of a surgeon or a registered nurse.
